The injured Francesco Totti has been left out of the Roma squad for Friday’s Serie A match against Udinese.
The club captain was expected to return to action after spending the last month sidelined with a thigh strain.
However, the veteran picked up a left ankle problem in training on Wednesday which has ruled him out of the Stadio Friuli clash.
The injured Marco Borriello has also failed to recover in time to make the trip.
Squad: Curci, Lobont, Stekelenburg; Cassetti, José Angel, Juan, Heinze, Kjaer; De Rossi, Gago, Greco, Lamela, Perrotta, Pjanic, Simplicio, Taddei; Bojan, Caprari, Osvaldo.
