Balzaretti targets Palermo return

Roma’s Federico Balzaretti is working hard in training in an effort to face former club Palermo this weekend.

The left-back has been sidelined for over a week after picking up a right thigh strain during training ahead of the Udinese game.

However, the Italian international is back in training and desperate to face the Rosanero at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma signed the defender for €4.5m in the summer given that he had less than a year left on his contract in Sicily.
