While Wednesday’s return to training saw Juventus busy themselves with the hard yards that are typical of a pre-season regime, Thursday afternoon brought a welcome return of the ball.
Following fitness work in the morning, Massimiliano Allegri’s men focused their attentions on honing their ball skills, with passing drills the order of the afternoon.
Missing out once again on the session was Roberto Pereyra, who is still feeling the effects of tonsillitis.
Tomorrow will see Juventus undergo a solitary workout in the morning, ahead of Saturday’s double training session and Sunday’s day of rest.
Monday brings the start of an intense week of work in which the Bianconeri will be at the double every day up until Saturday 16 July, when Allegri will hold his final training session ahead of the Sunday’s departure for the Juventus Jeep Tour 2016 in Australia and Hong Kong.
