Milan defender Ignazio Abate hopes to be back playing in time for the Champions League.
The Rossoneri face PSV Eindhoven next week in the first leg of the play-off.
And the full-back has admitted that he is working hard, following a dislocated shoulder, to get back in time for the group stages.
“I’ve been working so hard,” he told Milan Channel. “Today was the first day I worked with the rest of the team, so hopefully my shoulder responds well.
“I feel much better and my goal is to be ready for the Champions League.”
