The French striker has been out since January 6 with an ankle problem, but is now fit again and has been named in Juve's squad for the Europa League clash with Ajax on Thursday.

After a difficult season the Turin giants seem to be turning things round, with new coach Alberto Zaccheroni enjoying his first win since taking the helm when his side beat Genoa 3-2 at the weekend.

The victory kept alive the side's hopes of Champions League qualification: Juve now lie sixth in the Serie A table, but trail fourth-placed Napoli by just a point.

"We really needed that victory," said Juve defender Nicola Legrottaglie.

"It was important to regain confidence in our potential and now we hope that against Ajax we can find the continuity that we have lacked up to now."
