Antonio Di Natale is out of action for at least a week after suffering a minor thigh strain during training with Udinese.
The captain pulled up during yesterday’s session with a muscular problem and today tests confirmed a first degree lesion to the left thigh muscle.
“Di Natale will need absolute rest for five days, at the end of which he can begin a gradual return to the field.”
It means Di Natale is out of Saturday’s game with Catania.
