Zaniolo with a chance to start with Helsinki & Atalanta

Andy Mattioli

Zaniolo’s speedy recovery from a dislocated shoulder did not go unnoticed as Jose Mourinho praised the 23-year-old’s effort to make himself available to the team despite not being 100% and willingly going to the bench in last night’s away win over Empoli.

Zaniolo is now looking to take part in two consecutive group training sessions ahead of Roma’s upcoming Europa League fixture with Helsinki.

As reported in La Gazzetta dello Sport, Zaniolo could even start on Thursday night and use it as an opportunity to further improve his condition for the big match vs Atalanta right before the international break.
