Roma defender Gianluca Mancini is doubtful ahead of the crucial showdown between Napoli and the Giallorossi.

The club vice-captain recently played through what appears to be a serious case of pubalgia or sportsman’s hernia.

According to Il Tempo, Mancini has dealing with a chronic groin injury that causes him to feel pain with each step he takes on the field. However, Mancini has continued to play through it due to lack of alternatives in his position and Chris Smalling’s prolonged absence.

Roma are increasingly concerned with Mancini’s status and the potential long-term repercussions the injury might have.
