Juventus winger Marko Pjaca’s season is over after the Croatian FA confirmed he sustained an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury while on international duty against Estonia.
The 21-year-old was stretchered off in the second half of a 3-0 friendly defeat in Tallinn on Tuesday and following scans, Croatia released a statement detailing the need for surgery and an absence of “several months”.
“After medical exams, we can confirm Marko Pjaca suffered a hard knee injury,” the statement read.
“His cruciate ligament is damaged and he has to have surgery and several months’ recovery.”
