No surgery for Diawara: the midfielder will continue with physical therapy

John Solano

Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo reports that Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara will not undergo a knee operation to repair his injured meniscus.

The Guinean suffered the injury in the second half of the Giallorossi’s loss to Juventus and after several consultations and examinations — both Roma and the player have decided to continue with a course of physical therapy and to hold-off on surgery.

Diawara is already starting to see improvement in his conditions and he will continue his rehabilitation over the coming days. The player will have follow-up examinations next week — however, he is still expected to be out for the next 2-3 weeks, which is when Paulo Fonseca hopes to reintegrate him into the squad.
