Pellegrini returns in 2023

Lorenzo Pellegrini ends his 2022 contract early. The Giallorossi midfielder suffered a physical problem during Sunday night’s derby, later won by the Biancocelesti 1-0, which forced him to leave the pitch, making way for youngster Volpato.

On Monday the Roma captain underwent instrumental examinations to assess the extent of the injury. The outcome was not what they hoped for in the Roma household: first-degree injury to the flexor in his right thigh.

Mourinho will have to do without his fantasista for the last two engagements before the World Cup break in Qatar: against Sassuolo at the Mapei and against Torino at home. With Dybala still in the pits, the main suspect to act as a pairing with Zaniolo behind Abraham is the class of 2003 Volpato.
