Internationals return to Juventus

Juventus’ Euro 2012 contingent reported into the club’s Vinovo training base on Tuesday ahead of phase two of pre-season training.

Although the outfit have already spent 12 days at Chattilon, the club’s Italian internationals were given extra time off to recover from June’s championship after the Azzurri reached the Final.

Gigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Emanuele Giaccherini, Claudio Marchisio, Andrea Pirlo and new signing Sebastian Giovinco all clocked in.

The latter has been signed outright from Parma after an €11m fee was agreed for the remaining half share of his contract.

Juventus, as a whole, will start training again on Wednesday ahead of friendlies against Hertha Berlin, Benfica and Malaga.

The Old Lady will then face Napoli for the Italian Super Cup in Beijing on August 11.
