De Rossi avoids surgery

Roma captain Daniele De Rossi will continue conservative treatment for his knee injury rather than have surgery, it’s reported.

The 35-year-old midfielder has been working hard in the gym and with medics to recover from the cyst on the meniscus ligament in his knee.

He even skipped his family’s winter vacation in the Maldives to focus on his fitness levels.

According to Sky Sport Italia, it paid off, as he has been told he doesn’t require an operation to resolve the issue.

De Rossi has not played since October 28 and Roma resumed training today.
