The Argentinian Paulo Dybala, the brazilian Arthur Melo and the american Weston McKennie returned to training this Sunday, Easter day, with Juventus after being excluded from the call for Saturday’s derby against Torino as punishment for violating Italian anti-coronavirus rules and participate in a dinner.
The technician Andrea Pirlo summoned his squad in the morning of this sunday to prepare for next Wednesday’s important clash against Naples, with whom he shares the fourth place and with whom he fights not to be left out of the next Champions League.
The starting players in the derby did recovery work and everyone else trained normally, Juventus said in a statement.
Dybala, that has not played a game since January 10 due to a knee injury, Arthur and McKennie could enter the list for the appointment against Naples after missing the derby against Torino through indiscipline, which ended 2-2.
The three players were fined by the Italian authorities 400 euros, the provisions for those who do not respect the anti-coronavirus rules, and also will be financially sanctioned by their club, predictably harder.
“The three players from the party the other day are not summoned and we will see when they will return. The decision was made by me and the club did the rest. It was not a good time to do it (dinner), due to the respect of the rules in a Such a difficult moment and because it was two days before the derby, “Pirlo said at the press conference prior to the match against Torino.
