Roma name pre-season squad

Roma named their squad for pre-season medicals, including Leandro Castan, Mattia Destro, Gervinho and Iago Falque.

The Giallorossi begin their campaign on Sunday morning at the Trigoria ground, then go to the Pinzolo retreat from July 6 to 11.

Coach Rudi Garcia called up the list of players for the get-together, including Destro, Gervinho, Ashley Cole and Daniele Verde, who could well move on before the season begins.

Also present is Castan, who can begin the campaign almost a year after tests discovered a cavernoma in his brain. This was a group of irregular blood vessels that required delicate surgery.

Summer buy Iago Falque is the only new face in the squad.

Roma pre-season squad: Silvio Anocic, Arturo Calabresi, Elio Capradossi, Leandro Castan, Ashley Cole, Morgan De Sanctis, Mattia Destro, Lorenzo Di Livio, Christian D'Urso, Iago Falque Silva, Alessandro Florenzi, Gervinho, Juan Manuel Iturbe, Jose Machin, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Emanuele Ndoj, Leandro Paredes, Ionut Pop, Antonio Sanabria, Sisenando Maicon, Kevin Strootman, Tomas Svedkauskas, Francesco Totti, Salih Uçan, Daniele Verde, Tomas Vestenicky.
