Schick is there, Florenzi aims for the recovery


Il Tempo (Austini): A relief but also some doubts. Di Francesco reunited yesterday with Patrick Schick as the first of the national team players returned to Trigoria. For all of them, there was a scheduled cool-down session, the Czech, though, underwent a medical examination that confirmed the first thoughts: some discomfort in his groin suffered during training with the Czech Republic. Schick will be able to train in the next few days, if everything tests OK then he will be called for Roma-Chievo on Sunday.

After a slight calf problem, Pastore should be considered out for this match as yesterday he has trained away from the group along with Mirante and Florenzi. The Roman fullback, though, between today and tomorrow should be back in the group and could make it for the match against the Veronese side, even if Karsdorp is favored to start from the first minute. Perotti is recovered and today the last of the internationals will return: Dzeko and Manolas. Monchi will also be present at Trigoria and it is not excluded that he will decide to speak with the team after all have returned. Di Francesco, meanwhile, plans for turnover in view of the upcoming matches, but first of all, he must give certainty to the team: he is likely to return to his preferred 4-3-3 as his general formation.
