16 Shares

Weston McKennie has been forced to sit out the past four Juventus matches due to a knee injury suffered on November 27, but the U.S. men’s national team star is back and available for the Bianconeri this weekend.

McKennie is available for Massimiliano Allegri’s side as Juventus faces a trip to Bologna, knowing a win could see them move them up fifth place. McKennie has been out for the past four matches in all competitions due to a knee injury, but could play a role for the first time since late November. The midfielder has totaled 16 appearances for the Juventus this season, scoring two goals and bringing a spark to the midfield when healthy.
