Franco di Santo Likely to Be Back Soon, Confirms Weinzierl

Wolfsburg remain confident that Franco di Santo will be able to make a return back to the first-team for the game against Darmstadt 98.

The striker has been struggling with a dominant muscle strain for several weeks now. The team has been struggling quite badly in the absence of the striker. Manager Markus Weinzierl also has to do with the other forwards likeBreelEmbolo and KlaasJan Huntelaar. The former is struggling with an ankle joint fracture while the latter is out with a knee injury. It has been quite a few weeks since the club has managed to achieve victory.

Weinzierl is not helped by the fact that a number of his forwards are currently out with injuries. It has imposed a relegation fears within the club, but the club are confident of getting the Argentine striker back in the first team sooner rather than later.Weinzierl has revealed that the player has travelled to visit a renowned doctor in Munich in order to recover from the muscle strain, which has been affected for quite a while.

The situation is also improving for Wolfsburg in the form of Klaas Jan Huntelaar, as the manager expects the player to be back in the first-team in the matter of days rather than weeks.

"There is a real hope that he [Franco di Santo] will be there on Sunday. It was about getting a second opinion when we could put it back, because a tummy tuck is slightly different from an injury in the wader or thigh. This is very bad to test, we can tap him badly around the belly. We have exercised caution. Perhaps it would have gone, but then he would take a wrong step and then fall out until winter," said the manager about the injury situation of Franco di Santo.
