Roger Ibañez to miss up to 4 weeks of action

Ibanez of AS Roma

Roma will likely have to do without their starting defender in Roger Ibañez for the upcoming weeks, reports Il Tempo.

According to the newspaper, Ibañez – who exited the game against Inter at half-time – has suffered a collateral ligament elongation to the left knee. The injury could reportedly keep him sidelined for the next 3-4 weeks.

The Brazilian centre-back could return around March 6th, in time for Roma’s big match vs Atalanta.

In the meantime, Marash Kumbulla will take his place alongside Chris Smalling and Gianluca Mancini.
