Roma will have to wait until tomorrow for the verdict on Jordan Veretout’s injury, but the prognosis is worrying.
The midfielder had originally been scheduled to have his tests today, but the appointment was postponed until Friday because the bruising is still too severe to get a good image of the situation.
When there is that much bruising, it suggests a lot of blood was released under the skin and the muscular tear is severe.
Veretout pulled up screaming mid-run during last night’s 2-1 win over Fiorentina at the Stadio Franchi and had to be carried off by two members of the medical team.
The reports suggest he has a serious thigh strain in his right leg, which would require at least a month off the field.
