Spinazzola returns to group training ahead of Salzburg showdown

Andy Mattioli

Good news for Jose Mourinho after an initial injury scare for Leonardo Spinazzola.

The Italian fullback – who had initially been predicted to remain sidelined with a thigh injury for at least four weeks – is set to return to group training later today, reports Corriere della Sera.

The injury he suffered in Roma’s defeat to Napoli turned out to be minor compared to the first prognosis.

As a result, Jose Mourinho is hoping to have Spinazzola back at his disposal for the upcoming Europa League match with Salzburg on Thursday night.
