Quagliarella operated on for broken cheekbone


Juventus forward Fabio Quagliarella underwent a 20-minute operation on Monday to repair the damage to his broken cheekbone, his club said.

The 28-year-old Italy international was injured in a 23rd minute clash with Andrea Esposito during Sunday's 1-0 win at rock-bottom Lecce.

Juventus say he will need a week of complete rest before returning to training, after which he will need to wear a face mask.
