Marquinhos unlikely to play in Coppa

Roma defender Marquinhos has admitted that he may not be fit for the Coppa Italia semi-final tomorrow evening.

The Giallorossi face Inter in the last four of the competition, but the 18-year-old has revealed that he is unlikely to play a part.

“My knee still hurts,” he told reporters this afternoon. “I still don't know if I can play on Wednesday.”

The Brazilian centre-back first picked up the injury at the beginning of March, before playing 90 minutes against Parma and Lazio. However, the youngster was on the bench for the win over Torino last Sunday, with physios worried about re-inflaming the knock.
