Adelaide United’s marquee player Paul Agostino has returned to full training after overcoming a calf problem.
The striker tore his calf muscle the day before the Reds were due to play Bunyodkor in the second leg of the Asian Champions League semi-final in mid October.
“To be honest I’m feeling good. It has been a bit frustrating having to stop training for three to four weeks and then start again,” Agostino said.
“It’s a nice feeling to be amongst the boys again, I’m still as keen as ever and have still got some big goals in mind this season.”
As the club approaches the FIFA Club World Cup commencing in December, Agostino said he was keen to be a part of that after missing the most important matches of the ACL.
“I didn’t want to miss out on that (the Club World Cup) and if I can come through the youth game on Friday night I would love to be on board,” Agostino said.
“I’m just taking it one day at a time. At my age I’m assessing the body after every training session but I feel good and feel I can still help the team.”
