French veteran David Trezeguet is confident that he will return to playing action very soon as he prepares to return to training.

Juventus doctors have given the striker the go-ahead to return to full training on December 30.

Trezeguet will have a difficult task forcing his way back into the starting line-up given the great form of Amauri and Alessandro Del Piero, but for the Frenchman just being able to train has been a great Christmas gift.

"You cannot imagine the joy I felt when I was able to train with the ball between my feet."
