For Benedikt Höwedes, the season hasn't gone exactly how he would have planned it with injuries limiting the German to one Serie A appearance in November's 3-0 win over Crotone.
However, the Germany international has been back in training with the Bianconeri for nearly a fortnight, as he hopes to make an impact on the squad with the biggest games of the season still in front of Massimiliano Allegri's men.
"I’m happy to be back with the team," said Höwedes in today in a live interview on Juventus' international Facebook page. "I’m in good shape actually. I’ve been training for one and a half weeks with the team so I’m getting closer."
