Manolas requires ankle tests

Roma fans are anxiously awaiting news after defender Kostas Manolas was stretchered off in agony during the 3-2 win at Frosinone.

The centre-back was visibly distraught after his last-ditch tackle on Cristian Molinaro saw him sprain his right ankle.

He was taken away on a stretcher with his head in his hands and will have tests tomorrow.

It is very bad timing for the Giallorossi, who face rivals Lazio in the Derby della Capitale next week, then have the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie with FC Porto on March 6.

“We’ll have to wait and see. The ankle has swollen up a bit, so we need to evaluate it,” Coach Eusebio Di Francesco told DAZN.
