Gianluca Mancini’s injury worsens as defender plays through it in Milan defeat

Andy Mattioli

Roma captain Gianluca Mancini was unable to conclude last night’s match with AC Milan.

The Italian defender came off at half-time, replaced by Lorenzo Pellegrini. As a result of his exit, Bryan Cristante slotted into the defense for the remainder of the game which Roma ended up losing 3-1.

According to Sky Sport, Mancini’s condition remains unclear – the Roma centre-back had been playing through a chronic groin injury for the past couple of months.

This time, the injury seems to have worsened, possibly preventing Mancini from featuring in the next few games for the Giallorossi.
