Roma midfielder Javier Pastore has returned to full training for the first time in over six months. The Argentine made his return to the fold today following a hip injury that plagued him nearly all of last season.
The former PSG man trained alongside his teammates today for the first time since June and for the first time since he underwent hip surgery in Spain on the 11th of August.
Pastore originally suffered the injury in November 2019 and was sidelined until late January after he and the club opted for a conservative rehabilitation approach as opposed to an operation.
After making two appearances following the COVID-19 stoppage, Pastore ultimately decided to undergo surgery late in the summer with the procedure being performed by Professor Marc Tey in Barcelona.
After multiple months of post-operation rehabilitation, the Argentine has marked his return to the pitch, however, manager Paulo Fonseca isn’t expected to call him up for this weekend’s league fixture against Sampdoria.
