Diego Llorente injures thigh muscle in Atalanta defeat

Roma defender Diego Llorente was unable to continue playing in last night’s defeat in Bergamo.

The Spaniard was forced to walk off the pitch with a painful expression on his face. As he was being taken off, Llorente was seen in tears.

Initial reports suggest Llorente injured his thigh flexor muscle but there is not timeline of recovery yet.

The player will undergo necessary tests later today which will determine his return to the pitch.
