Juventus's Marco Storari's flight forced into emergency landing due to explosion

Juventus goalkeeper Marco Storari suffers a scare when his flight is forced into making an emergency landing after a rear wheel explodes.

Juventus goalkeeper Marco Storari feared for his safety after the plane he was travelling on was forced to make an emergency landing due to a wheel explosion.

The 38-year-old was one of 154 passengers on board a flight from Turin to Catania in Italy when one of the rear left wheels exploded shortly after take-off.

Forty minutes later, the pilot steered the aircraft back to Caselle airport and after the ordeal, Storari was offered another flight, but he reportedly decided against boarding.

"We heard a loud noise and we were scared because at the beginning we didn't know what was happening," the Daily Star quotes Storari as saying. "We became suspicious when the plane continued to fly over Turin."

The incident occurred a matter of days after Juventus suffered a 3-1 defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League final in Berlin.
