Roma Staff Under Pressure over Continuous Injuries

Roma have already endured seven muscular problems in the first month of the season, which is raising questions about their preseason preparation. Some ailing players will be ready for the upcoming Empoli game, but their training methodology is under scrutiny.

Per Corriere dello Sport, the issues have all been in the same area, the adductor. Paulo Dybala already had two, one during a friendly and another against Verona. The same goes for Lorenzo Pellegrini, although they have been more manageable. He didn’t start against Milan due to discomfort in his right leg, while he couldn’t play with Italy because the left one was aching.

Renato Sanches got hurt almost right away, and this kind of ailment has been recurring in his career. Gianluca Mancini will be assessed soon after subbing off versus North Macedonia. Roma would be down to just three defenders if he missed time.

Instead, Houssem Aoaur sustained an injury in the same body part, the thigh, but not the identical muscle. He pulled his flexor. The tests ruled out a strain, and he’ll be a late call for the next match. Nicola Zalewski didn’t report to Poland due to tightness in his glue.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Roma director Tiago Pinto remains confident about the medical department. It’ll try to improve their preventive measures. Instead, José Mourinho chalked it up to the checkered injury history of their players.
