Ciao a tutti, purtroppo sono risultato positivo al Covid-19 ma voglio far sapere a tutti che sto bene e che non ho sintomi. Ora rispetterò i giorni di isolamento ma non vedo l’ora di poter iniziare a lavorare con il resto della squadra in vista dell’inizio di stagione. Ci vediamo presto e sempre Forza Roma!
As a result, Roma’s first pre-season training session has been cancelled. The squad were due to reconvene this evening, but their return will now have to wait until Saturday afternoon.
