The player has pleaded his innocence since failing a drugs test in September but despite his protestations, Blasi's pleas went unheard at the Italian FA.
The former Perugia midfielder has revealed the anguish he felt during his spell away from the game and how he is still not sure as to why he was banned.
''I'd like to recover the five months lost,'' Blasi admitted. ''The problem is that I don't know why I was ever stopped.
''It has been a hard period but finally I can now get back on the pitch.
''For me it's finished and I hope it will remain only a bad memory.''
Blasi is currently only on loan at Parma and general manager of his parent club Juventus, Luciano Moggi, has confirmed this week that the Serie A giants are keen to bring the player back to the Stadio Delle Alpi in the summer.
However, Blasi has promised to concentrate his efforts solely on Parma and for moment, put thoughts of Juventus to the back of his mind
''Juve? The officials told me to stay tranquil about the disqualification,'' continued Blasi.
''But it is hard to say who is suffering and for the moment I'm only thinking of Parma.''
