Immobile provides injury update

Ciro Immobile hopes to return to action as soon as possible but admits he fears an injury relapse.

The Italian striker missed Saturday’s game against Juventus due to a calf injury but hopes to return to the pitch soon.

“It’s going better, I make some improvements every day,” the 31-year-old told Il Corriere dello Sport.

“I would have played against Juventus had I had problems with another muscle and not the calf,” he continued.

“It’s a delicate muscle and it’s better not to take any risk. I need to undergo further medical examinations. I no longer feel pain, but I don’t want to get injured again, so I need to be patient. I hope to return as soon as possible.”

Immobile is Serie A’s top scorer, along with Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic. They have scored ten goals each so far this season.
