Maicon delays Roma return

It’s reported Douglas Maicon won’t join Roma on pre-season training in Austria, but it’s with the club’s permission.

The Brazilian right-back will not be with the rest of the squad when they fly out to Bad Waltersdorf for the next stage of pre-season preparations.

There were some rumours this was due to some disagreement with the club over a contract renewal.

However, sources close to Roma assure it was organised and Maicon is in Brazil with his family for the remaining days of his post-World Cup vacation.

Maicon is expected to resume training on Tuesday.
