AS Roma did not just defeat 1-2 when entertaining Juventus in 2019/2020 Serie A. They were also harmed by Nicolo Zaniolo’s injury.
Entertaining Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico on Monday (1/13/2020) Nicolo Zaniolo performed well at the beginning of the match.
The 20-year-old Italian was seen crying as he was carried off the pitch. Zaniolo was immediately taken to the Villa Stuart clinic by ambulance for a medical examination.
According to the injury that befell him in the duel this morning, Nicolo Zaniolo experienced a tear in the ACL in his right knee, followed by some damage to his meniscus. Zaniolo will be operated on this Monday,” AS Roma wrote on its official website.
Zaniolo’s injury is clearly a major blow to AS Roma and the Italian national team. The Capital Wolf Team might lose the player for a long time.
While Zaniolo’s chances of appearing at the 2020 European Cup with the Azzurri seem to have vanished with the injury.
Various support flowed for Zaniolo, including from Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri. Sarri joined in praying for Zainolo’s recovery.
“We all hope that he is well and can recover soon,” Sarri was quoted as saying by Football Italia.
It is unclear how long Zaniolo will step aside to recover his injury. However, the player is predicted to be absent until the end of the season.
