Matuidi: “I need a holiday!”

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi admits “I’d gladly take a week’s holiday by the sea” but "it's not possible" right now.

The 31-year-old helped France to win the World Cup in the summer, and he’s already played 16 games for the Bianconeri this season.

Now he will join up with Les Bleus for the international break, leaving very little time to recharge his batteries.

“I’d gladly take a week’s holiday by the sea, if only I could,” Matuidi admitted in an interview with La Repubblica.

Matuidi returns to Juventus training

Blaise Matuidi and Joao Cancelo both trained with Juventus this afternoon, ahead of tomorrow’s Manchester United game.

The Bianconeri were facing a midfield injury crisis, as Sami Khedira is just coming back from muscular problems and Emre Can is out.

Blaise Matuidi missed Sunday and Monday’s sessions with a bruised hip, leaving Rodrigo Bentancur and Miralem Pjanic as the only fit central midfielders.

However, Matuidi returned to training at Continassa today, so should be available for selection tomorrow night.

Chiellini back in Juventus training

Giorgio Chiellini and Mario Mandzukic returned to Juventus training ahead of the Manchester United game, but Blaise Matuidi worked separately.

The Bianconeri will secure a place in the Last 16 of the Champions League if they avoid defeat on Wednesday, while a win would see them top the group with two games to spare.

Chiellini missed the weekend win over Cagliari with an injury, but he returned to group training today.

Mandzukic missed yesterday’s session after a recurrence of an ankle problem, but he also trained with the rest of the squad.
