TURIN, Italy -- Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta will miss nearly all of preseason training with a thigh injury, the Italian club said on its website Tuesday.

Iaquinta was initially injured in the FIFA World Cup playing for Italy, and it was revealed after his return to Juventus he had thigh muscle tear. Iaquinta will miss one month, according to the club.

The 30-year-old missed six months of last season's Serie A with a knee injury. However, the club stated Iaquinta will be ready for the start of the new Serie A season in late August.
