Fonseca names squad for Ajax clash

The injured Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been left out of Roma’s squad to face Ajax tomorrow.

The Giallorossi are on their way to Amsterdam, where they will face Ajax in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals tomorrow.

It kicks off at 20.00 GMT at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The former Manchester United players have trained individually, and Paulo Fonseca hopes to recover them for the next Serie A game against Bologna.

Rick Karsdorp is also not 100 per cent fit but is suspended for the Amsterdam ArenA tie.


During his pre-match press conference, Ajax coach Erik ten Hag said Roma are an “entertaining team” but insisted his side can beat Roma and qualify for the Europa League semi-finals.
