Destro injured in training, Garcia must wait until tomorrow

La Gazzetta dello Sport: Mattia Destro was limited to gym work and physiotherapy in training today after the striker suffered inflammation to a tendon in his thigh.

Manager Rudi Garcia will have to wait until tomorrow to receive a final prognosis on Destro and whether or not he will be available for Wednesday’s match with Cesena. As of now, the medical staff seems confident that Destro will recover in time — if this is the case, Destro will begin the match at center forward for Roma and will be flanked by Gervinho and one of Alessandro Florenzi or Juan Iturbe.
