Pier Paolo Mariani, the doctor who operated on Nicolo Zaniolo’s knee, says the Roma player can recover ahead of Euro 2020.
Zaniolo was stretchered off in the 36th minute against Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday evening, and it was later confirmed that he had ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament and damaged the meniscus.
On Monday he went under the knife to reconstruct part of the damaged knee, and is expected to be out of action for five to six months.
