Di Natale dismisses fitness concerns

Antonio Di Natale shrugged off concerns over his fitness after he scored twice in Udinese’s 4-2 win against Parma on Monday.

The forward, who turns 37 next month, started last week’s trip to Lazio on the bench and was a doubt heading into this evening’s eventual 4-2 win over Parma.

However, having netted twice against the Ducali, the veteran has briefly commented on his condition, before focusing on the latest win earned, which pushes the Zebrette up to third place.

“I'm fine physically,” Di Natale told reporters after tonight’s action.

“I have to thank my teammates for the goals. And [Thomas] Heurtaux? He scored a great goal and I must compliment him.

“[Antonio] Cassano’s a great player, and it’s nice to see players like him perform.

“I haven’t looked at the table yet. We have begun well and have earned a big win against Parma.

“Now we must think about the next game, and we hope to continue like this.”
