Verona striker Luca Toni is a doubt ahead of this weekend’s Serie A game against Sassuolo.
The veteran, who grabbed a brace in the Week 1 win over Milan, is struggling with a tendon problem in his left ankle.
The 2006 World Cup winner has been working in the pool over the last few days in a bid to shake off the issue.
If Toni isn’t passed fit to start, boss Andrea Mandorlini is expected to turn to Daniele Cacia for the tie against the Neroverdi.
