Good news for Jose Mourinho and his men as Roma prepare to face a final tough stretch games that will include the likes of Napoli and Lazio before the World Cup break in mid-November.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Zeki Celik has completed his first group training session. The Turkish international had been nursing a knee injury he suffered in a contrast with fellow teammate Gianluca Mancini in the 1-2 loss to Real Betis at the Stadio Olimpico earlier in the month.

Celik will now have to undergo a series of training drills before being allowed back on the pitch but the newspaper claims the players is expected to recover before the World Cup break.
