Turin: Five-time Year World Player Cristiano Ronaldo joined Series A Juventus Training Champions on Tuesday (May 19, 2020) following a 72-day absence that included the last two weeks in quarantine.
The 35-year-old was filmed in a black car arriving at the Continassa training ground at the Turin club, and was due to undergo a medical check-up before meeting coach Maurizio Sarri and his teammates.
After Juventus beat Inter Milan 2-0 behind closed doors on March 8, Ronaldo flew back to his native Madeira, their final game before Serie A was suspended because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Earlier this month he returned to Turin in a private jet but then had to spend two weeks at home under Italy’s quarantine rules.
Series A clubs returned to training on May 4 but are limited to small group training and must comply with guidelines for social distancing.
The government is still debating whether Series A should be allowed to restart but said on Monday it would not happen before at least June 14, one day after the league had hoped to launch.
The team is also missing striker Gonzalo Higuain who just returned from Argentina to Italy last Thursday and has to quarantine for another 10 days.
