Cengiz Ünder remains out, likely to return after the international break


Il Tempo (Austini) – Among the many problems that Ranieri has found in Trigoria, there is still the unsolved case of Ünder. The Turk injured his left thigh in the early minutes of Roma-Torino, a match played on 19 January and there doesn’t seem to be the slightest hope of seeing him in Ferrara on Saturday against SPAL. In all likelihood, the attacker will be available again after the international break against Napoli on 31 March, marking two and a half months out. Unbelievable.

It’s clear that something has gone wrong during his recovery, which isn’t the first time this season something like this has happened: the same happened to Lorenzo Pellegrini, who’s another who will be unavailable Saturday along with Manolas, De Rossi and the disqualified Florenzi. For them, the return will also occur against Napoli while the calf issue suffered by Zaniolo will not prevent him from playing against SPAL. Pastore also has a chance to be on the bench after his calf issue while Ranieri recover both Kolarov and Dzeko, as well as a Fazio. There is some curiosity about the choices available: will Dzeko, Schick, Zaniolo and El Shaarawy be able to coexist?
