Maarten Stekelenburg has been ruled out of tonight’s Coppa Italia quarter-final tie between Fiorentina and Roma.
The Dutchman has returned to the Italian capital this morning after being struck by a stomach bug during the night.
Stekelenburg, 30, has had a problematic 2012-13 given that he’s lost his place in the first team plans of boss Zdenek Zeman.
The Czech tactician has preferred Mauro Goicoechea since the former Ajax man picked up an injury at Parma.
