Thigh discomfort for Politano, distraction for Perisic: emergency situation for Spalletti as both players may not be ready for Torino
Luciano Spalletti will have to deal with an emergency situation for tomorrow’s game in Turin against Torino. The Nerazzurri coach will probably have to be without Ivan Perisic and Matteo Politano.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the former Sassuolo winger has been dealing with a muscular discomfort (thigh) over the past few days. Medical exams did not show serious issue but he is still bothered by it. Politano has practically been training by himself this week and maybe he will do it for the first time with his teammates today. Will it be enough for a call up? At the moment, it is difficult to see him in the starting lineup.
Different situation for Ivan Perisic: the Croatian is down mentally and training intensity has been affected by his overall mood and transfer market rumors. It seems very complicated for him to start as well.
These are the remaining doubts prior to Torino and Spalletti is hopeful that these can be dissolved today.
