De Rossi suffers foot fracture

Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi suffered a foot fracture during his side’s 2-0 win at Empoli on Saturday.

De Rossi played the entirety of Roma’s trip to Empoli but showed signs of discomfort early in the second half.

ANSA reports the midfielder underwent tests on Monday, which showed ‘a fracture to the fifth proximal phalanx in his left foot’.

Aleksandar Kolarov picked up a similar problem before the Derby della Capitale against Lazio on September 29, although he faced the Aquile and Viktoria Plzen, before sitting out at the weekend.
