Diawara avoids ACL injury but will miss a month with Dzeko

Amadou Diawara has undergone surgery after injuring his knee in Roma’s draw with Cagliari on Sunday.

In an intense physical battle that ended as a draw, Diawara fell victim of a foul by Luca Cigarini, with the effects of the challenge being fully felt minutes later when the Guinean went down off the ball.

The midfielder looked to be in agony and had to be replaced after describing to the medical staff the discomfort he felt in his knee.

Fans were fearing the worst after Devid Bouah and Davide Zappacosta’s recent ACL injuries, but examinations at the Villa Stuart medical centre have today confirmed that Diawara’s injury is not that serious.

The ex-Napoli man has suffered a torn meniscus to his left knee, on which surgery has been performed, ruling him out for between 30 and 40 days.

Also present at Villa Stuart this morning was Edin Dzeko, who had surgery on two fractured cheekbones. Like Diawara, the striker could be out for around a month.
