Villar suffers minor knee sprain, Veretout returns to group training

Andy Mattioli

Both good and bad news for Roma. First, the bad news.

Roma midfielder Gonzalo Villar, who featured as a substitute in Roma’s preseason friendly against Porto a couple of days ago, picked up a minor injury in yesterday’s training.

ANSA report that it is a first degree knee sprain. The club are not worried and the player has already began to rehabilitate. However, he will definitely miss tomorrow’s friendly against Sevilla, with Darboe starting in his place once again.

On the other hand, the good news is that Jordan Veretout finally returned to group training. The French midfielder picked up a muscular injury over a week ago, which has kept him sidelined for the most part of Roma’s preseason games.
