Roma test right-back Manolas

Roma tested Kostas Manolas at right-back, as they have an injury crisis going into the clash with Inter.

The Giallorossi host their former Coach Luciano Spalletti at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday evening.

Alessandro Florenzi, Rick Karsdorp, Luca Pellegrini and Emerson Palmieri are out of action, while Bruno Peres is undergoing treatment and in doubt to feature.

Nura Abdullahi was the only remaining right-back in the squad and he has now been ruled out for six to eight weeks with a right thigh strain.

Sky Sport Italia report that Coach Eusebio Di Francesco tested out a new four-man defence in training today with Manolas on the right.

Federico Fazio joined Juan Jesus in the centre, leaving Aleksandar Kolarov on the left.
