Carrera: Bendtner is ready to play for Juventus

The stand-in Bianconeri coach has confirmed that there are no injury concerns ahead of their next Serie A fixture, and says the Denmark international could feature
Massimo Carrera has revealed that Juventus will have a full squad to pick from for Saturday's tie with Chievo at the Juventus Stadium, and suggested Arsenal's on-loan striker Nicklas Bendtner could feature.

The Bianconeri currently lie first in the early Serie A standings, ahead of Napoli and Lazio on goal difference.

"Everyone is available," the former Juve defender told reporters. "We'll work out our best starting line-up over the next two training sessions.

"We have many important players here and I'm confident that whoever is selected for Chievo will fit into our system well."

The 48-year-old also spoke of the encouragement his players could take from their 2-2 draw away to Chelsea in the Champions League.

"We'll take heart from the performance in London," said the once-capped Italy international. "We saw the aggressive, determined Juventus from last year."

Carrera also suggested that summer signing Bendtner could be in line to make his debut.

"Bendtner has been training with the squad and is ready," said the caretaker coach. "We'll see if he has a part to play."
