La Repubblica claims Renato Sanches consulted a “witch doctor” over injury issues

Andy Mattioli

Roma midfielder Renato Sanches is desperately seeking answers for his physical issues that have kept him sidelined in recent months.

After joining Roma on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, Sanches failed to make an impact on Mourinho’s side, only making two appearances from the start and briefly featuring in small capacity in recent weeks.

According to La Repubblica, the player has grown increasingly frustrated with his situation. Both PSG and Roma’s medical staff seem unable to resolve the issues affecting the Portuguese international.

As a result of this, the newspaper claims Sanches recently decided to consult with a witch doctor to assess whether he is being conditioned by higher powers.

For the moment, the consultation proved fruitless – the issues affecting Sanches seem more psychological than physical in nature.
