Paul Pogba has not been included in Juventus‘ squad list for Saturday’s Serie A clash against Lazio, but coach Massimiliano Allegri will also remain in Turin because of flu.

The Bianconeri boss held a classic pre-match press conference on Friday but won’t follow the team in the capital, Juventus said on Twitter.

Allegri is stuck with flu, so he has to remain in Turin and hasn’t travelled to Rome, where Juventus face Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio on Saturday.

Pogba returned to training with the rest of the team on Wednesday but is still not fit to feature in a competitive match, so he hasn’t been included in Juventus’ squad list, contrary to Bonucci, who is available against Lazio.

The Frenchman will be working at Continassa and may be available against Sporting CP on Thursday in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals in Turin.

Mattia De Sciglio is also out of action against Lazio due to muscle fatigue, Football Italia understands.
