Smalling hopes to return against Genoa

With the international break in full swing, Roma will regroup at Trigoria. The likes of Zaniolo and Pellegrini will use this break as an opportunity to recover from their respective injuries.

Chris Smalling’s return, on the other hand, seems to be imminent.

After going down against Empoli with a muscular injury to his thigh, the Roma defender is reportedly nearing a return to the pitch.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Englishman hopes to be back at Jose Mourinho’s disposal after the international break and be called up for the match vs Genoa.

The defender flew to London a week ago for a consultation regarding his recovery.

All signs point to Smalling being available at the end of this month.
