The Bianconeri were back on the training ground this afternoon to prepare for Saturday’s Serie A trip to the Ennio Tardini, where they will face Roberto Donadoni’s Parma.
With a heavy fixture schedule on the horizon, Massimiliano Allegri granted 24 hours’ rest only to those who featured in last night’s Coppa Italia semi-final return leg success over Fiorentina, while it was business as usual for the remainder of the group.
Missing out on today’s session were Stephan Lichtsteiner, who was given treatment for the bruise sustained to his right thigh that forced him to skip Tuesday night’s encounter, and Carlos Tevez, whose medical assessments revealed no serious issues.
The Argentine will now undergo a specific regime to recover from the muscle fatigue that resulted in yesterday morning’s precautionary departure from the team’s Florence base.
Meanwhile, Andrea Barzagli, who felt some discomfort in his left calf during yesterday’s warm-up, underwent medical tests today. These ruled out any muscular tears, instead showing an overloaded soleus muscle. His condition will continue to be monitored, but he is a doubt for Saturday’s fixture against Parma.
Tomorrow will see Allegri work with a full group at his disposal, with a morning session on the agenda.
