Roma midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has finally received the long-awaited green light from the medical staff to fully reintegrate with the rest of the team in group training following 4 months of recovery from a fractured tibia.

The player is now aiming to earn his first call-up. According to Il Tempo, Mourinho could have him sit on the bench in this weekend’s fixture with Empoli.

Italian media claim it will take him 2-3 weeks before being able to get significant minutes on the field.
