Marrone may replace Bonucci

Luca Marrone is on standby to face Roma should Juventus stopper Leonardo Bonucci be ruled out with injury.

Bonucci trained away from the rest of the squad on Thursday because of a few fitness issues which will be assessed during this afternoon’s session.

Should the Italian international not recover in time for Saturday’s big match, his place in the middle of the back three could be taken by Marrone.

The Italian Under-21 international is primarily a central midfielder, but he’s been used as a centre-back on a few occasions this season.
