Chiellini and Mandzukic returns to Juventus training ahead of Man Utd game



Giorgio Chiellini and Mario Mandzukic returned to Juventus training ahead of the Manchester United game, but Blaise Matuidi worked separately.

The Bianconeri will secure a place in the Last 16 of the Champions League if they avoid defeat on Wednesday, while a win would see them top the group with two games to spare.

Chiellini missed the weekend win over Cagliari with an injury, but he returned to group training today.

Mandzukic missed yesterday’s session after a recurrence of an ankle problem, but he also trained with the rest of the squad.

However, French midfielder Matuidi did a personalised session after suffering a bruised hip against Cagliari, the second session in a row he’s missed.

Joao Cancelo also followed a personalised programme as he has a slight thigh strain.

Douglas Costa had physiotherapy on a thigh injury of his own, while Moise Kean will have scans on a problem with his left thigh flexors.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri will address the media at 18.20 UK time tomorrow, with Leonardo Bonucci alongside him.

Jose Mourinho’s Press conference is slated for 17.45.
