Melo eager to make Juventus comeback

Melo has been struggling with an ankle injury that he sustained during last week’s Champions League clash with French side Bordeaux.

Melo is now keen on making the Juventus squad for the trip to Genoa on Thursday.

“I hope so,” Melo is quoted as saying in Turin daily Tuttosport.

“I can’t wait to make myself available to Ferrara and step back onto the pitch. It is nice to watch the team win, but giving your contribution…

“The ankle is better, I don’t feel any pain and I am optimistic. But the medical staff will obviously have the last word.”
