ALBUFEIRA – Alarm returned and sigh of relief from Mourinho and all of Rome. Lorenzo Pellegrini and Chris Smalling are well. Or rather, they are a little sore but without serious consequences for their injuries. Both had stopped during the game against Casa Pia: Pellegrini for a tibia problem, Smalling for one ankle.
But there was no need for instrumental tests. The Giallorossi captain suffered a severe contusion that forced him to stop at half an hour in the first half, but he could try to return to the group tomorrow. Smalling suffered a left ankle problem that did not alarm the Giallorossi medical staff. He’s sore, and that’s why he could rest tomorrow.
