Reno Piscopo (calf) out for 1-2 weeks for Wellington Phoenix #FantasyALeague
Coach Ufuk Talay has confirmed midfielder Reno Piscopo will miss the opening game against reigning champions Sydney FC in Wollongong on Saturday night after picking up a calf injury in pre-season.
Although the injury is only minor, Talay is taking no risks with one of his most exciting young prospects and has already ruled the skilful Australian under-23 international out of contention for selection.
He said Piscopo could also miss the Phoenix’s second game against newcomers Macarthur FC on January 9 but should be back for their third game against Newcastle Jets on January 24.
Piscopo had a breakout A-League season in 2020 with Wellington Phoenix rising almost $40k in value on Fantasy A-League.
