Zaniolo to remain in the capital: no international duty

In the end, all signs point to Nicolo Zaniolo spending his international break in the capital training under Jose Mourinho.

According to Il Tempo, the 22-year-old will not be at Roberto Mancini’s disposal following Matteo Pessina’s injury.

Zaniolo is reportedly suffering from muscle soreness after Roma’s win against Empoli which rules him out for international duty.

As a result, Mancini has called up Milan’s Sandro Tonali.
