“I’m feeling good, I’m not feeling any pain; I can sleep without any problem and I’m regaining my optimal mobility”.
David Trezeguet is back to Sisport Centre, where he’s resumed training and now looks in a good shape. After one month and a half since the shoulder surgery that kept him away from the pitch and from Turin, the Frenchman tells how he’s spent this time: “The day after surgery I started treatment in the swimming pool, in order to regain mobility, which was already quite good and after one month I started running. I was very careful about food, that is very important when you are forced to stop physical activity. I’m now still training on my own to avoid any accidental strike and I’ll start using the football again next week. Approximately on December, 19th we’ll have a consultation with the medical staff and the coach about my conditions and we’ll plan my return on the pitch. I may be playing again by the end of January.”
David is impatient to get back to the real game, which is a sign that physical problems are over and so are any psychological obstacles: “Fear is over. Was I asked to get back to the field of play next Sunday I would do it without any problem, I’m more worried about getting back to my full fitness as soon as possible. After all, surgery was made necessary by my way of playing… anyway I’ll be back for the most interesting phase of Serie A and Champions’ League too.” Trezeguet can recover his fitness calmly, since Juventus has been able to cope with his absence and maintain the lead in the table and win all European fixtures: “I had no doubt that the squad would do well even without me. I just have to look at them players’ quality to see that this is a winning group that can go far.
I’m happy for the strikers, who regularly scored. Ibrahimovic has fit into the group very well; he just needed a little time, he’s now showing his great potential. Del Piero and Zalayeta are doing great too. I feel the urge to play again because this team do well, they score and win and I want to be part of this group again as soon as possible”.
David dedicates his latest thought to his teammates and coach who were particularly close to him during this month and a half: “While I was in Lyon, my National team mate Cissé had a serious injury too and I immediately called him as I know that when you’re injured you’re happy to be phoned, it is positive for your spirits. Well, I’ve been phoned by everyone at Juventus and they made me feel important as we’re not only colleagues but friends too.”
