De Sciglio returns to Juventus training

Mattia De Sciglio has suffered a false start to his time at Juventus but is in training with a trip to former club AC Milan on the horizon.

Juventus defender Mattia De Sciglio is back in training with the Serie A champions following over a month on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

De Sciglio joined Juve from AC Milan during the close-season in a €12million deal but has endured a frustrating start to life in Turin.

After appearing as a substitute in August's 3-2 Supercoppa Italiana defeat to Lazio, the Italy full-back was forced to wait until September for a full debut away to Barcelona in the Champions League.

But De Sciglio, 25, hobbled off after 41 minutes as Massimiliano Allegri's side suffered a 3-0 loss.

He returned to work with Allegri's first-team squad on Monday, at the start of a week when Juventus will aim to build on Sunday's stunning 6-2 away win over Udinese in Wednesday's home clash with SPAL, before travelling to San Siro to face De Sciglio's old side Milan at the weekend.
