Federico Chiesa made his long-awaited return to competitive football last night as a second-half substitute for Juventus against PSG.
The attacker has been injured since the beginning of this year and is still working on his return to full form.
The Bianconeri expected him to return after the World Cup, but he made great progress in recent weeks and earned him a place in the Bianconeri’s squad for the match against the Parisians.
He entered the game as a substitute for Fabio Miretti shortly after PSG scored the winning goal.
He couldn’t help Juve win at least one point in the game, but it was great to have him on the pitch in a competitive game.
The former Fiorentina man was also delighted to be back and posted it on his Instagram page after the match.
He posted some photos and captioned it: “To the Juventus fans, to Juventus, thank you!”
Juve FC says
It’s great to see Chiesa back in the team after such a long time and now we can get more goals from the boys.
The winger still needs time to reach his peak fitness, but we can trust he will make an impact with the few minutes he gets in the coming weeks.
