Buffon injury is a mystery

Juventus are worried about Gigi Buffon's fitness, as he doesn't appear to have recovered from a bout of the flu.

The Italy international missed last Sunday's game against Roma after being taken ill just hours before kick-off.

Reports in Turin claim he has yet to train with the first team and that Marco Storari looks set to keep his place in the starting line up against Genoa.

There are fears that Buffon has actually suffered a relapse of the back injury that kept him out for the first half of the season and that he is being left on the sidelines as a precaution.

In the meantime, Buffon's agent Silvano Martina says his client will be back in training on Saturday and available for selection too.
