Juventus Calls in Players for Training This Week despite Coronavirus Lockdown


According Football Italia, the training ground at Continassa has opened up for individual training sessions, although guidelines for social distancing still need to be observed.

Cristiano Ronaldo only returned last night from Portugal while Szczesny arrived from Poland today.

Wojciech Szczesny and Cristiano Ronaldo have returned to Turin and have to start their 14-day quarantine.

Douglas Costa and Danilo are reported to be flying in from Brazil tomorrow so all of these players can’t even set foot in the training ground until May 20.

Gonzalo Higuain is still in Argentina and when he will return it is not clear. He left just after training was declared to be soon resumed, and Juventus is under fire for allow him and other players to travel in this time of a pandemic.

Meanwhile, unlike Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi, Paulo Dybala has not been given the all-clear from COVID-19 so he can not return to the training either.

Anyone from another country who comes to Italy must go into quarantine for 14 days before having more tests. Those who have already been given the all-clear for COVID-19 can start running on the training pitches from today, but for players who have been abroad the situation is thus more complicated.
