Juventus Striker Alessandro Del Piero In Line For Bologna Return
The Old Lady hero could be ready to return to action on Sunday, though the Champions League date against Bayern Munich could be a more realistic goal.
Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero is on the verge of making his return from injury.
The Italian has been troubled by a muscular strain in his left leg that has kept him on the sidelines.
According to Tuttosport, Del Piero has had a special training programme that was designed to speed up his recovery.
His workload has increased on a daily basis and he has reached a level that will permit a possible return for Sunday’s game against Bologna in Turin.
Coach Ciro Ferrara has been keeping his eye on the No.10 during his recovery.
The former defender took part in one of Del Piero’s sessions and challenged the forward to out-perform him.
Despite the report, Del Piero’s return to action has not been confirmed officially by the club. Indeed, voices in Turin suggest a return against Bayern Munich is more likely.
