Giampaolo Pazzini is confident his fitness levels are “improving day by day” after suffering a micro-fracture.
The Milan striker scored a goal against Genoa even after sustaining the injury from a Daniele Portanova tackle, but when tests showed the micro-fracture to the head of the fibula, he was ruled out for around a month.
“I am improving, even if not very quickly, but I can see it improving day by day,” Pazzini told Mediaset Premium.
“I am working very hard to get back on to the pitch as soon as possible. I am happy for Mario Balotelli, as he scored a great goal against Brazil and is having a really positive time.”
