Roma back in training for Europa League clash with Feyenoord on Thursday!

Roma have already put their disappointing 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona behind them as they returned to training at Trigoria on Monday in order to prepare for their crucial Europa League battle with Feyenoord later this week.

The Giallorossi will be playing their round of 16 second leg against the Stadionclub in Rotterdam on Thursday and must win if they hope to advance to the next round of the competition, but may have to do so without a few key players.

According to, coach Rudi Garcia’s squad was split up into two different groups for Monday’s training session, with the players who participated in Sunday’s draw against Hellas Verona set in one group to do recovery work and the rest of the players placed into another to go about their normal workouts.

Training session

Juan Iturbe was on the field but worked separately from his team-mates, while Victor Ibarbo hit the gym and participated in several physical therapy exercises.

Maicon received a third scheduled treatment on his ailing knee and both Leandro Castan and Kevin Strootman continued with their personalized recovery programs, as both are still expected to be out of action for quite some time.

Alessandro Florenzi underwent tests on his twisted left ankle on Monday morning, which confirmed that he has suffered from minor ligament damage. While the midfielder has already begun treatment, it is unlikely that he will appear in the clash with Feyenoord on Thursday.
