Nicolo Zaniolo to return to group training in coming days

Andy Mattioli

Roma are hoping to be able to rely on Nicolo Zaniolo as soon as the upcoming league engagement with Empoli. The player – who went down with a dislocated shoulder in the match against Cremonese – could soon make full recovery.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Zaniolo took part in his first individual training session yesterday. The 23-year-old was seen not wearing anything on the injured shoulder, which indicates imminent recovery.

Zaniolo is doing everything he can in order to be at Jose Mourinho’s disposal on Sunday. The Portuguese technician hopes to at least be able to call him off the bench in the second half to Roma-Empoli.
