Nicolò Zaniolo decided to undergo surgery in the USA and no longer at Villa Stuart in Rome where he had already done the surgery for the rupture of the cruciate in his right knee.
No Villa Stuart, and the Crusader operation postponed by Saturday for Nicolò Zaniolo . The Roma player, after a long consultation with his family and the Giallorossi staff, decided not to undergo the new cruciate surgery in Italy (this time on the left knee).
Crusader seriously injured in the match between Italy and the Netherlands. The number 22, destined to remain out for 6 months, has chosen to be operated on in the US. And more precisely in the clinic that in recent years has successfully managed to put Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Riccardo Calafiori back on their feet.
Zaniolo will then be operated on in Pittsburgh by Dr Volker Musahl and Dr Freddie Fu, presumably between Thursday and Friday.
Were the workouts not enough?
In Trigoria, analyzing the reasons for the new injury, the training issue came under examination. In fact, Zaniolo reached Coverciano on Saturday 29 August a few hours after the first training session with Roma. He played 20 minutes against Bosnia with 4 and a half training sessions in the legs, then another two days of travel, another half training and again on the pitch at Holland.
According to Repubblica, for Zaniolo, who is unable to spare himself and who returned only in July after the first surgery, putting in 8 games in a month, it is likely that those sessions were not enough to structure the muscle "cage" in the knee. In fact, the lesion came due to a hyperextension before the clash with Van de Beek. (Source Repubblica).
