“Enthusiasm, work and football”: the first day of the Allegri-bis

Juventus, the era of Max starts again without many national teams. Arrivabene, Nedved and Cherubini were also present

“Enthusiasm, desire to work and play football”. Massimiliano Allegri started his first training on the pitch with these three indications. And it matters little if many protagonists of the 2021-22 season are still absent due to the holidays that began only after the European Championships or the America’s Cup, the menu of his second adventure in Juventus will be ready to repeat it again in the coming weeks. After the visits to J Medical on Wednesday, players and staff gathered at the Continassa for the start of activities within the Juventus sports center: exercises focused on technique and then first athletic work in the morning, gym during the afternoon hours. The hours of rest are spent at the J Hotel: each player has his own room at his complete disposal throughout the year, strictly with the number of his jersey. Management present in full force on the first day of work: the new CEO Maurizio Arrivabene, a well-known face in the club but at his first official releases in the new role, attended the training on the sidelines together with the vice president Pavel Nedved and the director sportsman Federico Cherubini. A double session is also scheduled for the next few days.

First day

Eyes on Paulo Dybala and Weston McKennie, among the players who immediately want to carve out an important space in the new cheerful Juve, and then maximum attention on the young people who will be able to shine during the pre-season. The goalkeepers clearly work separately with Coach Claudio Filippi. The first returns are expected for next week, it will be the turn of the players who have concluded the summer competitions with their respective national teams in the groups. Countdown also for the return to Turin of Cristiano Ronaldo, expected for next 25 July. The Portuguese – who has not communicated any will of early transfer – will therefore honor the contract that binds him to the Lady until 30 June 2022. On the market front, some daily movements only on young people: double sale towards Pisa for Idrissa Toure (a definitive title) and Pietro Beruatto (on loan), while the Swiss defender Albian Hajdari, born in 2003, returned from the loan to Basel, one season earlier than the terms set out in the first agreement.
