ROME – An injury, that of Nicolò Zaniolo (cruciate ligament rupture), which many remembered that of Francesco Totti in 2006 (fibula). An injury, however, that the former Roma captain recovered in a few months – four – playing, as a starter, the World Cup in which Italy triumphed in the Berlin final. And if there will be the European Football Championship this summer, the hope is that the young Giallorossi talent will be able to retrace the footsteps of his predecessor and be ready for the continental event. Hope, or rather, a comparison that has not gone unnoticed by Paola Ferrari, the face of sports journalism on Rai.
The journalist wrote a tweet that has been the subject of much criticism from users: “Serious injury for Zaniolo . Ligament rupture is feared. Francesco Totti fractured his fibula on February 19, 2006 and after 5 months he became World Champion with Italy in Berlin. That it bodes well. " In comparing the two injuries, the journalist perhaps did not take into account the extent: Totti broke the fibula, which has shorter recovery times, while Zaniolo saw the crusader yield, which normally takes at least 6 months. And above all, as many users have pointed out, wishing an "auspicious" injury was certainly not a happy lexical choice by Paola Ferrari. Source: TWITTER.
