Destro hopes to be back in a month

Mattia Destro has claimed that he should be back in the Roma team in a month's time after knee surgery.

The young forward has been out since January following his operation, but the former Siena man has insisted that he wants to be back for the Rome derby, whilst also commenting on the Giallorossi's season so far.

“I hope to return within a month,” he told reporters this evening. “I want to be fully fit for the derby [in April] and then prove my worth to the team.

“We had a difficult time in mid-season, but now we're recovering well. Having said that, I think overall it's been a positive.”
