Zaniolo could undergo surgery on broken nose after Spezia-Roma

Andy Mattioli

The last-second foul that granted Roma a penalty in their favor to win at the death against Spezia may have more long-term consequences for the 22-year-old than initially expected.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the young Roma star suffered an extremely heavy blow to the face, which caused major swelling. The club fear that Zaniolo may have broken his nose.

The player will make his return to Trigoria later today after spending Monday at home in La Spezia.

The club’s medical staff will run several tests on him, and if necessary, surgery will have to be carried out in the coming days.

This, on the other hand, puts Zaniolo’s availability for the crucial game against Atalanta at risk.
