Roma midfielder Renato Sanches is said to have recovered from muscle fatigue.

After an initial injury scare, the Portuguese international soon returned to Mourinho’s disposal ahead of the weekend fixture with Udinese.

Despite having been rumored to start on Sunday, Sanches will likely head to the bench instead, ready to play more minutes in the games that will follow as Roma continue their Europa League campaign, reports Corriere dello Sport.
