Maurizio Sarri has returned to the training field with Juventus as he continues his recovery following a bout of pneumonia.

The 60-year-old was diagnosed with pneumonia in mid-August and was forced to stay away from Juve's opening two games of the Serie A season – a 1-0 victory at Parma and a thrilling 4-3 triumph over his former club Napoli.

There were indications that Sarri could make an early return to the sidelines for the game against Napoli.

"We have the final training session in the afternoon and then we will see if he is able to make it tomorrow," Juve assistant Giovanni Martusciello said the day before the match.

Though Sarri was at the game in Turin, he watched on from the stands as his side earned a thrilling win thanks to a last-minute own goal from Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

With much of his squad away on international duty, Sarri led part of Juve's training session at Continassa on Wednesday.
