No surgery for Cristante: likely to return mid-January

John Solano

Good news for Roma and for Bryan Cristante. Sky Sport has reported that the Giallorossi midfielder will not have to undergo surgery following the injury he suffered to his adductor tendon last month in the match against Sampdoria.

The ex-Milan man once again traveled to Finland for a follow-up visit with Prof. Sakari Orava following his initial consultation, where it was determined the player would follow a specified therapy regimen.

Now, after almost two weeks, the muscle has responded well to the therapy and Dr. Orava has ruled out the possibility of an operation. Meanwhile, Cristante will continue his course of therapy until he reaches a full recovery, which at this point, is expected to be within the first two weeks of January.
