Zaniolo returns to Roma training

Good news for Roma and Italy, as Nicolò Zaniolo has returned to training with the squad for the first time since his knee injury on January 12.

The creative midfielder will turn 21 on July 2 and can celebrate it with his Giallorossi teammates.

Zaniolo had been one of the hottest properties in European football before rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament during a match against Juventus on January 12.

He had another operation last month on his nose to help clear his airways so he can breathe better.

After some sessions with the Roma youth team, today Zaniolo returned to training with Paulo Fonseca’s squad.

It should still be a couple of weeks before he is considered fit enough to play even as a substitute.
