Chris Smalling made his long-awaited return to Roma’s group training session earlier today.

The English defender had been sidelined with chronic tendonitis for the past few weeks, his last performance dating back to the defeat against Milan.

Despite some delays in his recovery, Smalling was finally reintegrated with the rest of the team in today’s training drills, reports Sky Sport.

His status for this weekend’s fixture remains uncertain, but Smalling hopes to be fully available for the match against Inter.
