Juventus – A fresh face in training at Vinovo

New arrival Juan Cuadrado links up with his Juventus team-mates as preparations get up and running for Sunday’s clash in the capital against Roma


Juan Cuadrado this afternoon linked up with his new team-mates as the Bianconeri’s preparations for Sunday’s Serie A encounter with Roma took flight in Vinovo.

With the ink dry on his one-season loan  switch from Chelsea, the Colombian wasted no time in heading to the training ground where he met Massimiliano Allegri and conducted his first session as a Juventus player in glorious sunshine.

The workout, which consisted of fitness drills and technical exercises, marked the start of a five-day build-up to this weekend’s clash in the capital, where the reigning champions will be eager to bounce back at the first time of asking following Sunday’s opening day defeat at the hands of Udinese.


Good news came in the form of Alvaro Morata’s return to the group for the first time since he suffered a calf injury in Shanghai, while Alex Sandro, who joined the club last Thursday, underwent a series of routine tests.

Tomorrow will see the Bianconeri raise the intensity of their preparations when they regroup at Juventus Center for a double session.
