Confirmed: Cancelo back for Supercoppa

Joao Cancelo will make his comeback in next week’s Supercoppa against Milan, Juventus boss Max Allegri has confirmed.

Cancelo has not played since Juve’s 1-0 win against Inter on December 7 and underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee a week later.

The operation was a success and the Portuguese spent the festive period recovering.

“On the right, De Sciglio will play. Cancelo? He’ll return in the Supercoppa,” Allegri said before the Bianconeri’s Coppa Italia last-16 tie with Bologna on Saturday.
