Injury blow rocks the Juventus camp ahead of their UCL clash with Borussia Mochengladbach, as Gianluigi Buffon will be unavailable, due to injury picked against Inter.
The Veteran goalkeeper, who is also captain of Juventus appeared to have injured his calf during the 0-0 draw with Inter and limped for a major part of the second half.
Buffon will sit out the match and undergo medical checkups, but he is more than certain understudy, Neto is more than adequate and ready to take over.
“I managed it [the problem] for about 65 minutes, which is a good sign, but we’ll see what the tests say,” he said to Rai Sport.
“I don’t know if I can recover but we have Neto, a very strong goalkeeper, who it’s not fair to call a back-up.”
Buffon, however, has backed Juve’s younger attacking players to establish themselves as world-class talents in the future.
“We have players with the potential to be attacking stars. They’re very young, and like all young people, they’re positive and have things to improve,” he added.
