Verratti returns for PSG

Marco Verratti is back in the Paris Saint-Germain squad for the Coupe de la Ligue final.

The Italian international hasn’t played since the end of February, as he’s been suffering with a groin injury, with inflammation on the bone.

It was feared that the 23-year-old could even miss the European Championships in France this summer, but it appears Verratti is on the verge of a comeback.

The former Pescara star has been named in Laurent Blanc’s PSG squad for the Coupe de la Ligue final against Lille tomorrow.

It’s good news for Antonio Conte and the Azzurri, as Juventus’ Claudio Marchisio has already been ruled-out of the tournament with a cruciate ligament injury.
