Immobile comeback delayed

Ciro Immobile’s Torino comeback has been delayed again, as a cyst has formed on the location of the thigh strain.

The striker had made a stunning start to his Granata campaign after arriving from Sevilla in January, scoring five goals with four assists in just 12 Serie A games.

He picked up a lesion to the tendon connecting his femoral bicep in the right thigh during the Turin Derby on March 20.

Immobile was meant to be out for a month, but is still feeling pain in training.

Immobile was meant to be out for a month, but is still feeling pain in training.

After more tests today, a cyst was discovered on the tear and he must therefore continue only very light work.

It seems likely Immobile won’t be fit until at least the final game of the season.

This puts a big dent in his hopes of getting a call-up for Euro 2016.
