At present the most disastrous department of Rome for the next season is the defensive one. The accident of Mario Rui will keep the new purchase out for about 6 months and the club will necessarily have to move to the market to replace the player.
Meanwhile, Rome continues to train in America waiting to know the date and opponent of its first official commitment, the Champions League preliminaries.
Mario Rui misfortune
A few days after his arrival in the Giallorossi, the Empoli defender must already (temporarily) leave the Roma shirt. Mario Rui in fact, he was injured in training in a game contrast, sustaining an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament. After the operation, recovery times are estimated at around 6 months: the player will not be available, at least, for the entire first half of the season.
The player was due to leave for Rome yesterday but the flight was postponed due to a breakdown. The operation will therefore be postponed to tomorrow or Wednesday.
Mario Rui's injury adds to that of Ruediger and does not make Spalletti sleep soundly, who has declared that, at present, they are needed two reinforcements in the backlog. Numerically, Rome is not quiet even in midfield where you will have to be very careful not to avoid further problems.
We will see how the preparation of the team will continue in view of the Champions League preliminaries who will see Roma take the Giallorossi for a place in the final phase of the tournament. The draw is scheduled for August 5 while the races are scheduled for August 15-16 (one way) and August 23-24 (return).
