Gaetano D’Agostino of Siena is hoping to be back in action for the Week 9 game against his hometown club Palermo.
The classy playmaker is struggling with a right thigh strain which already ruled him out of the Week 7 defeat to Juventus.
“I’m almost certain to miss the Atalanta game,” stated the former Roma and Udinese midfielder. “But I really hope to return after that for the tie versus Palermo.”
The 30-year-old has played in five of the Tuscan outfit’s seven matches so far this season.
