Llorente, Smalling push for recovery ahead of Monza showdown

Andy Mattioli

Diego Llorente and Chris Smalling are both expected to give their all in order to return to Mourinho’s disposal.

The two defenders have been dealing with nagging injuries over the past few weeks and are only now set to take part in group training for the first time ahead of the upcoming match with Monza.

According to Corriere dello Sport, both players are pushing to fully recover in the next few days, allowing Roma to rotate their defense more comfortably in what is going to be a difficult schedule.

Chris Smalling will return to group training later today, whereas Diego Llorente might still need a few more days of individual work.
