Sigh of relief for Lorenzo Pellegrini

There was concern around the condition of Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini after the Coppa Italia match won by the Capitoline side over Genoa, thanks to Paulo Dybala’s goal. In fact, the Giallorossi’s number 7 walked off upon returning to the pitch from the locker room, giving way right to the Joya.

On the morning of Friday, January 13, the player underwent tests that showed no muscle injury: instead, it was a flexor strain, which had already caused problems for the former Sassuolo midfielder before the World Cup.

Sigh of relief then for Jose Mourinho, who will have to consider whether to field the captain from the first minute in Sunday night’s match scheduled at the Stadio Olimpico against Fiorentina. However, a starting bench is likely for Pellegrini, who has already scored two goals and served five assists for his teammates this season.
