De Sanctis hospitalised after car accident

Roma director Morgan De Sanctis was reportedly involved in a serious car accident last night and the former goalkeeper underwent surgery this morning.

Il Messaggero reports the 43-year-old was involved in an accident on Via Cristoforo Colombo during the night and the Giallorossi manager initially arrived at the Villa Stuart Clinic in Rome for the first checks.

He was then transported to the Agostino Gemelli hospital to examine for any internal bleeding and monitor head trauma.

The newspaper reports he has fractured ribs and had abdomen surgery in the morning. He is currently in intensive care after a successful operation.

De Sanctis retired in July 2017, after a stint at Monaco, and has played for Pescara, Juventus, Udinese, Napoli and Roma in Italy.

The former goalkeeper was capped seven times by Italy and won the Coppa Italia with the Partenopei. His only League title came with Monaco in 2016-17.
