The return of Duvan Zapata it becomes a case. The Colombian seemed ready to return during the break, as Gasperini had also explained in recent weeks. From the time of recovery after exams, the goal was to be there after the national break. But it wasn’t like that, because the Atalanta striker will miss Fiorentina. But not only that, because second Sky Udinese will also miss the next time.
From the end of September we pass to mid-October, the risk is that the stop could be extended further. Duvan is training apart, has not recovered and is a yellow. As has already happened to him other times in his career, even in recent years. According to Bergamo courier he can even return at the end of October or beginning of November: “The timing of the recovery is currently not easy to understand, because Zapata has not yet started running with the group, because he continues to feel pain and therefore he doesn’t feel like taking risks as done last February. So, if it is true that everyone’s hope is to see him as soon as possible on the pitch, on the other hand the intention is not to rush the times, in collaboration with his physiotherapist, who from Valencia is advising him in this difficult moment. “.
It shouldn’t be a relapse but only the player’s feelings, who still feel pain and don’t want to rush the pace. It is also difficult to establish precise recovery times, at the moment Fiorentina and Udinese are missing and then we’ll see, there will be new evaluations. The Zapata case was born from Bergamo, and we will see what it will be between today and tomorrow Gasperini’s answer to the microphones, hoping that good news may arrive for the fantasy coaches. Yesterday the president Percassi he only said: “We are waiting for it”.
