September 23, 2008

David Trezeguet will not play for Juventus again until next year, the Serie A club confirmed on Tuesday.

The French striker underwent surgery this morning on both knees and will be sidelined for four months.

Trezeguet had struggled with injury since the start of the season and his condition worsened after his team's Champions League triumph against Zenit St Petersburg.

"Trezeguet will be sidelined for 120 days and hence his expected return to the pitch should take place at the end of January," read a statement on the club's official website.
