Roma injury crisis explodes

Roma’s 6-2 defeat to Manchester United also left them with a massive injury crisis, with serious problems for Leonardo Spinazzola, Jordan Veretout, Pau Lopez and others.

The first leg of the Europa League semi-final at Old Trafford was disastrous for both the present and the future.

Not only was it a heavy defeat, but it also saw Spinazzola, Pau Lopez and Veretout all leave the field in the opening 37 minutes.

According to the latest reports, they aren’t the only players out injured for tomorrow’s Serie A trip to Sampdoria.

Spinazzola has a lesion to the left flexor, Veretout the same injury to the right flexor.

Pau Lopez dislocated his shoulder and has flown to Switzerland for a specialist consultation, as he might require surgery.

Amadou Diawara is also ruled out with a groin problem, while Carles Perez strained the right flexor, though there is no lesion.
