After picking up just five points from the opening six Serie A games, and facing an important Champions League game against Sevilla, the last thing Juventus needed was player indiscipline.
But Uruguayan defender Martin Caceres definitely won’t be available to face his former club after being involved in a drink driving crash in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Juventus have fined the player and temporarily suspended him for ‘damaging the image of the club’ although Caceres escaped unhurt from his Ferrari.
The defender was already injured but manager Massimiliano Allegri is unlikely to be impressed after Caceres’ prang.
Confirmation that footballers, Ferraris and frozen strawberry daiquiris don’t mix.
