The Bianconeri returned to the training pitches at Juventus Center today with the first home match of the season at Juventus Stadium against Udinese on 13 September on their minds. Massimiliano Allegri’s men, suitably refreshed from their two days of rest after Saturday’s victory against Chievo, took part in a session of running drills and tactics. Even though the squad was depleted by the absences of those players currently on international duty, the additions to the group of fully fit duo Alvaro Morata and Andrea Barzagli was a welcome sight for the Tuscan manager who will no doubt be delighted to have them back at his disposal. In other news, Martin Caceres will now join up with the Uruguayan national team for their friendly against Japan in Sapporo on Friday after the birth of his second child, a son named Leon, yesterday afternoon.
