Ankle injury for Manolas

Roma are holding their breath after Kostas Manolas appeared to sprain his ankle while playing for Greece.

The defender started this evening’s Nations League match against Finland in Athens.

However, he went down clutching his right ankle in clear pain during the first half and had to be replaced.

Initial reports suggest it is a sprain, although more tests are required to ascertain the extent of the damage.

Roma have a Serie A trip to Udinese coming up next week, then Real Madrid in the Champions League and a showdown with Inter.
