Toni injury adds to Juve woes

The search for a striker at Juventus has become more pressing

following confirmation that Luca Toni will be out for a month with

a knee injury.

Tests revealed the Italy international suffered a knee ligament

lesion during Thursday’s Coppa Italia triumph over Catania.

The veteran forward joined Juve last week from Genoa shortly

after the Turin giants had lost Fabio Quagliarella to a knee injury

for the rest of the campaign.

To complicate matters for Juve coach Luigi Del Neri ahead of

Sunday’s match against rock-bottom Bari, Italy striker Vincenzo

Iaquinta is also still sidelined by injury while captain Alessandro

Del Piero is doubtful with a knee problem.
