Roma boss José Mourinho received good news ahead of his team’s Coppa Italia clash tomorrow against Lecce.

Attacker Stephan El Shaarawy was a full participant in the team’s final training session this afternoon after he missed out on Sunday’s win over Cagliari due to a muscle strain.

There’s a strong possibility the 29 year-old could start in attack tomorrow given Mourinho is expected to rotate the team. He’s expected to be joined in attack by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Carles Pérez and Eldor Shomurodov.

Meanwhile, Leonardo Spinazzola is still working his way back from the Achilles injury that he suffered in early July. However, he’s still at least a few weeks away from a full recovery.
