Josip Ilicic's absence from the squad continues to be a mystery. The Slovenian Atalanta has stopped since the match against Juventus on 11 July.
Ilicic 's recovery times continue to be totally unknown, also because Atalanta maintains maximum confidentiality in this regard. Initially out for an ankle problem , Gasperini has already announced that he will most likely not be available even for the Champions League match against PSG scheduled for 12 August.
But it is the indiscretion of the Gazzetta dello Sport to make the mystery on the player's condition even more dense. According to reports from the sports newspaper , Ilicic is currently in Slovenia , where he wanted to return, with the club's permission, to try to recover faster and spend time with his family.
Ilicic should stop at home only a few days, as per agreement with the club, and hopes to return to Bergamo regenerated. It is almost impossible to find him ready for the challenge against the PSG, although this pause could help both the player and the Nerazzurri to hope for a miraculous recovery.
In the meantime, the Bergamo fans have launched a social initiative to make them feel their support: many supporters have changed their profile photo on their respective social networks as a sign of affection for a player who was experiencing the best season ever. (source GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT)
