Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Turin two weeks ago after spending lockdown at his home in Madeira with family. He joined training on Tuesday at Continassa training ground after serving a mandatory quarantine for 14 days.
During his lockdown stay in Madeira with family, he regularly posted videos of workout with his partner, so Maurizio Sarri should be optimistic that his star will look sharp for his first training session at their facility in more than two months.
Along with his family, Ronaldo returned to Turin at the start of May and was required to spend 14 days at home in self-isolation as per government rules for international arrivals.
While Ronaldo was working on his footwork in the garden with Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, team-mates such as Aaron Ramsey, Juan Cuadrado and Giorgio Chiellini were back on the training ground.
He went there with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and his four children in an effort to avoid contracting the virus, having seen three of his team-mates in Daniele Rugani, Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi among the first Serie A players to test positive for Covid-19.
It was announced last week that clubs in Italy are allowed to return to team training on May 18 – but matches remain some way off following a government decree banning sporting events until June 15.
Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signed off a motion on Sunday banning ‘any event and sporting competition of any order and discipline’ until June 14, a measure ratified by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and so Ronaldo and Co will have to remain patient in finishing their season.
Corriere dello Sport reported that Juventus versus Ferrari that the fence will come to the training facilities to have a glimpse of Cristiano Ronaldo and causing security concerns. That is the reason they did not let the training schedule get public.
Juventus had their last competitive match against Inter Milan on 8th of March where they beat their rival 2-0, rams it and die blah blah the school now from Serie A champion.
There are hopes that a return to small group training can pave the way to see Serie A return, with Juventus locked in a fierce battle to retain their title against Lazio, who are one point behind in second.
The Italian government laid out a protocol that the entire squad has to go to quarantine wants von player is tested positive, however Serie A clubs and the Players’ Association have rejected these rules.
Juventus’ title is far from secure and there is a desire to complete the season, despite Italy being the third worst affected country with Covid-19, with 32,169 deaths till now.
The Bundesliga in Germany is the only major league in Europe back up and running again.
