Weston McKennie Hopped Off the Pitch during Juventus-Atalanta

USMNT star Weston Mckennie hopped off the pitch during Juventus-Atalanta, a Serie A fixture on Saturday, worsening Juve’s injury crisis.

The midfielder hobbled off the field midway through the second half of the Serie A match between Juventus and Atalanta.

What precisely happened was that Juventus were trailing 0-1 to Atalanta and Weston McKennie wanted to deliver for his team.

In light of this, the Juventus midfielder embarked on a long run into the box midway through the second half.

But instead of scoring or creating a chance, the midfielder unfortunately clashed with Atalanta defender Berat Djimsiti. And he came out appearing to favour his knee.

After Juve’s medical staff immediately examined him on the pitch, McKennie hobbled off the pitch.

So, in the 64th minute, Moise Kean replaced the USMNT midfielder for Juventus.

Eventually, Juve would go on to lose 0-1 to Atalanta, dropping down to eighth place on the Serie A table.

Weston McKennie, preparing for potential football transfers, thus hobbled to exit the the pitch for Juventus on Saturday against Atalanta.

The U.S. national team midfielder (USMNT) has been in strong form of late. So, it’s safe to say that he’s of utmost importance for both his club, the Old Lady, and his country.

However, to disrupt this, Juventus had to replace the 23-year-old against Atalanta after McKennie took a blow to his knee.

And this tragedy has caused a potential injury headache for an already struggling Turin side.

However, after the incident, Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri claims the knock is only a “small thing”.

Allegri has been discussing the fitness of his players, including McKennie’s status, ahead of a meeting with Salernitana on Tuesday.

And the Juventus head coach has said of his American star’s injury: “For McKennie, it should be a small thing.”
