Josip Ilicic's absence from the squad continues to be a mystery. The Slovenian of Atalanta has now stopped from the match against Juventus on 11 July.
Ilicic 's recovery times continue to be totally unknown also because Atalanta maintains the utmost confidentiality in this regard. Initially out with an ankle problem , Gasperini has already announced that he will most likely not even be available for the Champions League match against PSG scheduled for 12 August.
But it is the indiscretion of the Gazzetta dello Sport that makes the mystery of the player's conditions even more dense. According to reports from the sports newspaper , Ilicic is currently in Slovenia , where he wanted to return, with the permission of the club, to try to recover more quickly and spend time with his family.
Ilicic should only stay at home for a few days, as agreed with the club, and hopes to return to Bergamo regenerated. It is almost impossible to find him ready for the match against PSG, even if this break could help both the player and the Nerazzurri environment to hope for a miraculous recovery.
Meanwhile, 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 towards a player who was experiencing the best season ever. (source GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT)
