Josip Ilicic, 32, is considering quitting football after he was granted permission to leave the Italian club’s training camp for personal reasons.
Ilicic met his wife Tina Polovina in 2009 and soon enough got married to her, they have two daughters Sofia and Victoria, rumours have it that the “little heart ” celebration the striker does after every goal is a dedication to his wife, Tina.
The Slovenian striker seems to have slipped into depression after he found his wife cheating on him when he decided to pay her a surprise visit at their country home in Slovenia.
Ilicic has been in fine form this season, scoring 21 goals in 34 matches, including five goals in the Champions League. The striker’s goals have been very crucial to the team’s fairytale season in Italy and Europe top competition with just two goals shy of 100 goals in Serie A.
Atalanta will surely miss their top striker, but Colombian forward Zapata and Luis Muriel have 19 goals each this season, while Mario Pasalic and Alejandro Gomez are both on double figures. Atalanta finished the season third on the league table as they failed to overcome Inter Milan in their last game of the season.
