Zaniolo suffers strong contusion in Verona win

Andy Mattioli

In a match that saw him score his first Serie A goal of the season, Nicolo Zaniolo was forced to leave the pitch of the Stadio Bentegodi in the second half due to injury.

As reported by Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo, Zaniolo walked off the pitch a strong contusion to the thigh as a result of a blow received while trying to win the ball from the opponent.

His condition will be monitored and re-assessed by the club’s medical staff in the coming days but Mourinho’s hope is to have him at his disposal already for Thursday night as the capital club await UEFA’s decision to reduce his ban.
