Renato Sanches trying to return to Mourinho’s disposal versus Slavia Praha

Andy Mattioli

Renato Sanches is hoping to earn some minutes in this week’s Europa League fixture.

The Portuguese midfielder – who has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a muscle injury – is looking to return to Jose Mourinho’s disposal later this week as Roma face Slavia Praha on Thursday.

According to Il Messaggero, Sanches hopes to be on the bench on Thursday night in order to be able to contribute to Roma’s upcoming big match with Inter Milan at San Siro.

There is a slight chance Mourinho may choose to give Sanches some minutes on Thursday night although the player is yet to return to group training.
