French 'bad boy' set to resume training at Juventus

French 'bad boy' set to resume training at Juventus”

Serie A has been on hold since March 8 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and although clubs are still waiting to be given a firm date to work towards, Rabiot and Gonzalo Higuain remain the only Juventus players yet to return to Italy.

The midfielder went to his Instagram to comment on the issue.

The first post in his Instagram story was a selfie of Rabiot looking thoughtful, with the ironic caption: "When you realise that it was your last day of. strike", along with a pair of laughing emojis.

Italian newspaper La Stampa had reported earlier this week that Rabiot was refusing to return to Turin following a disagreement with his club over wage reductions.

Shortly after, the former Paris Saint-Germain player posted a new image, a drawing of a small vial on which was written "Newspapers-TV-Press, do not swallow".

He will be forced to endure another 14-day period of self-isolation after arriving, as the Italian government is instructing those returning from overseas to quarantine themselves in an attempt to quell COVID-19's spread.

With many of his Juventus team-mates having already returned to Turin with training back underway ahead of the Serie A campaign possibly resuming, Rabiot's absence was interpreted by some as the fiery Frenchman having gone on strike.

Corriere Torino report on similar lines suggesting there is still tension at the club regarding Rabiot's extended absence, especially as of all the players who travelled overseas, he was the closest to Italy and the last to return.
