Iturbe out 15 days

According to journalist Matteo Politanò, Roma’s Juan Manuel Iturbe will be out 15 days due to a muscle strain and not for a month as it was initially feared.

The former Verona man, just minutes after opening his scoring account for the Giallorossi, had to leave the pitch early after what appeared to be a muscle problem in his leg. Initial reports suggested that the player may miss over a month, but this latest report dismisses any chance of a long-term lay-off for the Argentine.
