Another piece of bad news for Italian

The bad news continues at Fiorentina: the purple team, which will be engaged on Thursday, Jan. 12, in the challenge valid for the round of 16 of the Coppa Italia against Sampdoria, in addition to having to do without Arthur Cabral, due to a hamstring injury, will also not be able to count on another player.

The player in question is Riccardo Saponara, who returned to goal in the league in the win against Sassuolo. In fact, the former Genoa and Sampdoria among others will not be available to coach Italiano after suffering a sprained right ankle.

There are no indications yet on the recovery time, which will be clarified later, but the Viola are hoping to be able to recover the midfielder for the challenging match on Sunday, January 15, which will see the lily-livered team face José Mourinho’s Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in the match valid for the 18th day of Serie A. Should he not return against the Capitolini, we will most likely see Saponara again on January 21 at the Franchi, when Fiorentina will be pitted against Torino.
