The Giallorossi eased past Carpi on Saturday afternoon but will have the three players assessed on Sunday to understand for how long they will be out of action. After leaving hospital, the club icon – who scored his 300th Roma goal last week – admitted the injury had put a dampener on his 39th birthday celebrations.
