The captain after the Covid storm in November is one step away from returning. There is a green light from the health staff. And he has already regained the lost 6 kg
UDINE. Green light for Michele Antonutti. Yesterday morning at Carnera the captain of the Apu Old Wild West underwent some tests to verify the athletic condition a month and a half after returning to the gym after the second infection at Covid: the results are perfectly in line with expectations and from on Monday the “Cigno di Colloredo” will be able to return to the group.
To give the “blessing” to the captain for the great return is the athletic trainer Luigi Sepulcri: “The test results are very good, much better than at the beginning of this post-Covid path carried out by Antonutti and even superior to those of the tests carried out at the end of the summer athletic training. Michele recovered the metabolic deficit he had, even the strength values returned to the condition prior to the contagion last November. From next week the player will be able to start training with the rest of the team ».
Based on what Boniciolli and the rest of the coaching staff will feel, the appropriate assessments will be made for the return to the field with the 9th uniform for a championship match.
It is not excluded that Antonutti (who played the last match on 6 November at home against Pistoia) may return to the squad for the match on Sunday 23 January in Biella, while for a possible return to Carnera’s public friend the challenge of January 30 with Treviglio is in the sights.
In the evaluations that Boniciolli will have to make there is also the variable turnover: with Federico Mussini at full capacity after the long rehabilitation process following the right knee injury, there are eleven senior players on the roster, compared to ten places available on the scoresheet. .
Returning to the tests carried out yesterday by Antonutti, it should be emphasized that the player has recovered the six kilograms lost during the illness, everything is ok also with regard to the visit for the renewal of competitive fitness, carried out with Dr. Alessandro Grassi.
The “Cigno di Colloredo” sees the light at the end of the tunnel, and the credit is a team effort. Sepulcri is keen to list all the professionals of the Juventus staff who have allowed the captain to get back in perfect shape: Carlo Finetti, Carlo Campigotto, Marco Vendraminetto, Araldo Causero and the aforementioned Alessandro Grassi.
Because behind a winning team there is always a team that works perfectly.
