Benjamin Tahirovic suffers muscle injury

Benjamin Tahirovic was forced to forfeit yesterday’s friendly with Yokohama Marinos less than thirty minutes into the match due to fitness issues.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Primavera player – who was recently praised by Mourinho and hoped to break though Roma’s ranks in the season’s second half – went down with a painful flexor muscle.

The Italian newspaper informs that the 19-year-old will undergo a medical visit upon the team’s return from Japan. The youngster hopes to avoid a lengthy stop in order to be at Mourinho’s disposal for Roma’s upcoming training camp in Portugal.
