Juventus coach Sarri confirms 'sensitive' Higuain back in training

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has confirmed Gonzalo Higuain has returned to training.

Sarri admits the veteran has been affected more than most by the coronavirus impact.

Sarri said, “Gonzalo trained with the team yesterday. He can play a small role in a match, just like (Aaron) Ramsey.

“Pipita's a sensitive player, everything that's happened in his personal life and around the world has affected him.

“Upon returning, he didn't think it was right to restart [the season]. He's an important player for us."
