Roma squad for Austria named

Roma named their squad for the Austrian portion of pre-season training without Douglas Maicon.

There has been controversy over Maicon’s absence, as today all three main Italian sports papers suggest he delayed his return from Brazil as a bargaining tool for a better contract.

However, sources close to the club assure this time away was always planned as part of his post-World Cup vacation.

Goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis is still out of action after surgery on his elbow.

Roma will be in Austria’s Bad Waltersdorf training camp from August 9-15.

Roma squad for Austria: Astori, Balzaretti, Benatia, Borriello, Cole, Capradossi, Castan, De Rossi, Destro, Emanuelson, Florenzi, Gervinho, Iturbe, Keita, Ljajic, Lobont, Nainggolan, Paredes, Pjanic, Sanabria, Skorupski, Somma, Strootman, Svedkauskas, Torosidis, Totti, Ucan
