Antonio is predicted to be back by December but the midfielder is said to be absolutely determined to return to action ahead of schedule. Despite getting back to work in the gym, it is unlikely that we’ll see him back in full training before the next international break in November.
However, with the winger’s determination and hard work, he may surprise a few by coming back sooner than expected to the first team.
