The possibility of recovery in view of Bologna is to be verified. Today the verdict on Success’s injury in the last test
Where were we? At minute number 5 of the second half of the last race before the break, in Marassi, when Gerrard Deulofeu went out without being replaced by Nacho Pussetto, sitting on the bench, but not usable. After the draw with Sampdoria, it was hoped that the break in the championship would help Udinese solve the physical problems of the two in a rather easy way to allow Luca Gotti to prepare the match against Bologna – a sort of keystone for the Juventus first round – with relative tranquility in terms of range of choices.
Instead, both Deulofeu and Pussetto did not participate in last Saturday’s test with the Slovenians of Tabor Sezana, limiting themselves to a personalized work, even if the Catalan has already tried to kick the ball. According to when he had declared returning from Genoa, the problem in his right foot, a blow to the ankle, was of little consequence, but still to be monitored to avoid any complications, where last December Deulofeu had suffered a very painful stomp that had put him out. game for four days. Pussetto, on the other hand, is dealing with a bruised knee and since it took him months to recover from surgery on that joint, it is worth not speeding up his recovery.
Alongside these considerations, the competitive needs of Gotti who hopes to recover the two, also because in the meantime, in the last friendly match, he lost Isaac Success, the Nigerian used right behind the center forward (Beto for the occasion), in the context of the 4-2-3-1, the new module in which both Deulofeu and Pussetto could act among the three midfielders. Today the verdict on the recovery time of Success should arrive, but beyond this it is hard for the Contarina coach to plan and implement tactical changes without all the elements available. All that remains is to cross your fingers. –
