The 30-year-old midfielder has made 54 appearances for the Azzurri since his debut in 2009, scoring five goals.”It will be a huge loss,” Juventus and Italy team-mate Leonardo Bonucci said. “Claudio is a leader in this dressing room and that of the national team, apart from being a really great footballer.”Bonucci also wrote on his Instagram account: “An important victory, but there is nothing to celebrate. Today, we lost, for several months, an important player for Juve and the national team. Stay strong Marchisio. We will win for you and we’re expecting you (back) stronger than ever.”
