Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba’s first competitive start in over a year lasted only 24 minutes before he was forced off injured against Cremonese.
Pogba, 30, required treatment on his left thigh after he pulled up as he crossed the ball.
The France international covered his face as he left the field, with Juve going on to win 2-0.
“We’re all disappointed, not least because he was playing quite well,” said Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri.
“It’s sad because he’s made a lot of sacrifices to come back.
He has big enough shoulders. There’s always a risk when you’ve gone a year without playing, more so when you start the match.”
