ROME – Nicolò Zaniolo could recover from his injury in time for Euro 2020. This was revealed by Professor Mariani, a doctor who operated on him and who in the past operated many other champions such as Francesco Totti before the World Cup won by Italy in 2006. We report below, the statements made by Professor Mariani to the microphones of the Corriere dello Sport.
“Zaniolo could return to play in view of the European Championship, but no technical commissioner occupies a box with a question mark, for a presence that can be unknown.
There have been exceptions, such as the case of Totti, another Roma player, but it depends on the coach: for me it is important that you recover well in order to return to the professional football activity. On Sunday evening when he arrived at the clinic he was in tears. On Monday after the surgery he was already smiling. Paw because he already wants to stand up. Is there a difference between recovering a twenty year old and a thirty year old footballer?
I see little difference between these age groups. The good thing is that Zaniolo was operated on even less than 24 hours after the injury. In these cases, if you wait, it's worse. Taking immediate action is also useful on a psychological level. Even Totti, who underwent two important operations, was operated immediately "(source Il Corriere dello Sport).
