Roma’s Mattia Destro has taken his next step towards his comeback after he resumed full training on Wednesday.
The 2012 signing from Siena, via Genoa, has yet to play for the Giallorossi this season following a problematic knee injury.
The Italian international, 11 goals in 26 games for the outfit in 2012-13, took part in the squad’s technical and tactical session this morning.
The 22-year-old, however, will not be rushed and his return to first team action could still be a month away.
Meanwhile, it seems unlikely that Gervinho will recover for this weekend’s home game against Sassuolo.
Already without Francesco Totti, boss Rudi Garcia seems set to focus on a trident of Alessandro Florenzi, Marco Borriello and Adem Ljajic.
