Mourinho speaks about Spinazzola’s injury: “He won’t be back before January.”

Roma’s new technician continues his collaboration with talkSPORT. This time, when asked about Leonardo Spinazzola’s absence for the first few months of the upcoming season, the manager said:

“I’m very sad about this injury. It’s a huge blow for us.”

The Special One made a prediction regarding the wing-back’s potential timeline of return:

“He won’t be back before January. It will be like an additional January reinforcement.”

Yesterday, the manager met with the player to motivate him following his return flight from Finland.

Spinazzola is currently sidelined after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in the match against Belgium. This will keep him out of the pitch for the next six-seven months. As a result, Roma are currently scouting different options for a replacement. The latest names include Inter’s Federico Dimarco, Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri, Gladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini and free agent Ezgjan Alioski.
