Juve recall Paolucci from Siena

MILAN - Juventus have recalled striker Michele Paolucci from co-owners Siena to ease their injury problems, the Serie A side said in a statement on Saturday.

The forward, who will stay with the Turin club until the end of the season, goes straight into the squad for Sunday's trip to Chievo despite failing to hold down a starting place with bottom side Siena.

Third-placed Juve have struggled for consistency under new coach Ciro Ferrara this term and injuries to forwards David Trezeguet, Vincenzo Iaquinta and Sebastian Giovinco have left them short of options.
