Report: Diawara returns to action

Amadou Diawara should be one step away from returning to action for Roma and will play with the reserves tomorrow, according to Il Messaggero.

The midfielder has been out since he suffered a lesion to the meniscus and his last game came against Genoa on January 19.

But the newspaper has now revealed that his conservative rehabilitation programme has been showing great results.

Tomorrow, he is set to play with Alberto De Rossi’s youth side and the Giallorossi coach Paulo Fonseca shall supposedly follow his development closely during the match situation.

If his knee keeps up with the pace of a reserves match and Diawara feels no pain, the report claims that he could be in the squad for the match against Sevilla in the Europa League on March 12 and could be ready to start against Sampdoria in Serie A three days later.
