Roma seems to be affected by an incurable syndrome. Every year, several players are out for months due to inexplicable muscular injuries and broken cruciate ligaments.
In today’s edition of ‘Il Messaggero’, Gianluca Lengua featured all the muscular problems that Eusebio Di Francesco‘s team has suffered so far.
In the first seven official matches, the Italian coach has not been able to start Roma‘s best 11. Alisson, Karsdorp, Manolas, Juan Jesus, Kolarov, Nainggolan, De Rossi, Strootman, Schick, Dzeko, and Perotti…these are the players who have never had the possibility to play together.
Since the start of the season, Roma players have suffered 9 muscular injuries. Peres, Nura, Karsdorp, Moreno, Florenzi, Nainggolan, Schick, Defrel, and Perotti have had several issues so far.
In the big Serie A clash against Milan at San Siro Stadium on Sunday, Roma will not be able to start Defrel and Perotti as well. The former Sassuolo winger was replaced during the Champions League match against Qarabag due to a thigh muscle injury. Instead, the Argentine Perotti got 10 stitches on his left foot and a muscular problem in his right leg.
