Chris Smalling’s absence has puzzle Roma fans and coaching staff alike.
The English defender – who reportedly suffered a muscle injury in-training during the international break – has missed the past three games and is likely to miss more including tomorrow’s fixture with Genoa.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma are worried about the player’s condition given his importance to the Giallorossi’s defense.
Moreover, Mourinho is puzzled by the unclear timeline of recovery for the veteran centreback.
The Special One and the coaching staff do not wish to rush him back, risking him unnecessarily.
