The defender is raring to face Inter in Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina and, if everything goes according to plan, he could even be in the starting XI.
MilanNews.it reports that central defender Alessandro Nesta will join the rest of his team-mates for today’s training session at Milanello in a crucial test ahead of the grudge derby game against Inter on Sunday night.
The former Lazio captain has yet to make an official appearance this season, however, he could sensationally be handed a starting shirt at the weekend.
The 32-year-old has only featured in a friendly game in Albania last October and sat on the bench for the home game with Sampdoria. But his back problems flared up again and he travelled to Miami, where he has a home, for treatment.
He returned to Italy on January 21, insisting that he would be back in action within a month. True to his word, he now seems to have finally shaken off his problems and could have a starring role in Sunday’s make or break Derby della Madonnina.
