Pastore confirms hip operation

Roma creative midfielder Javier Pastore confirms via social media that he had surgery on his hip yesterday. ‘I struggled all year with this problem.’

The Argentina international barely featured since the lockdown and it’s now revealed he was suffering from a chronic problem.

“Yesterday the surgery on my hip was performed here in Barcelona,” wrote Pastore on Instagram.

“It all went well, apart from a little pain now. As you know, I struggled all year with this problem, but tried to delay the operation as much as possible so that I could help the team and my teammates to the end.

“Now I can turn my focus to recovering quickly and preparing the new season in the best possible way. Forza Roma!”
