Rui set for Primavera start

Mario Rui is ready to restart his Roma career.

After suffering a torn ACL in early August, the Portuguese left-back is ready to take part in his first match in nearly four months.

Today, Rui will play with Alberto De Rossi’s Primavera side at 14:30 CET at Tre Fontane. The ex Empoli man is expected to take the same path as Antonion Rüdiger and will likely be called up for the Derby, however, it’s unlikely he’ll take part in the match. It’s more likely he plays the following weekend against Milan, or perhaps even in the midweek clash against Astra.
