After a difficult start to the season, Roma midfielder Houssem Aouar is picking up pace as the Giallorossi enter a grueling calendar.
The Algerian international proved to be of key importance for his national team in their latest engagements, scoring a brace against Cape Verde and helping Belmadi’s men get a late equalizer with Egypt.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Aouar will return to Mourinho’s starting eleven in the Giallorossi’s upcoming match with Monza.
The Special One will utilize him as a hybrid replacement of Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini – both out with injury.
Aouar’s performance in Roma’s recent win over Cagliari showed encouraging signs of a player who is ready to get back to 100% fitness.
