Giorgio Chiellini says he’s keen to get back into action with Juventus after recovering from a calf injury.
The stopper has been sidelined since December, but he’s on the verge of making a return to the side.
“It has been hard to watch my teammates without being able to help,” the centre-back told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“But I’m now training again and recovered. My calf is not giving me the slightest problem,” added the international.
“I hope to be back in action as soon as possible, but boss Antonio Conte will decide when the moment is right after speaking with the medical staff.”
The 28-year-old has only played in 13 Serie A games so far this season.
