Zaniolo: ‘The countdown begins’

Nicolò Zaniolo sent a message to the Roma fans from the hospital bed. ‘Thanks to you, it has been less difficult’.

The attacking midfielder underwent surgery in Innsbruck, Austria, today. The intervention in the left knee was successful and the attacking midfielder starts a similar journey to the one he already went through in the second half of the 2019-20 campaign.

After having ruptured the ACL in the right knee against Juventus in January, the youngster suffered another ACL injury in his left knee against Holland in the UEFA Nations League.

“The countdown begins! Perfectly successful intervention,” Zaniolo wrote on Instagram. “A big hug to all those who wrote me to ask how I was.

“They were tough days but also thanks to you, in the end, it was less difficult. From now on, I count down to go back to doing what I love…

“That is, playing with the Roma shirt and cheering with you. Always forza Roma, madly in love with this shirt.”
