Roma midfielder Florenzi out for months after tearing ACL
Roma midfielder Alessandro Florenzi could be out for up to four months after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The Italy international was injured during the second half of Roma’s 3-1 win at Sassuolo on Wednesday. He was carried off the field in tears. Roma, which are two points behind Serie A leaders Juventus, said that Florenzi has undergone surgery yesterday. Florenzi is one of the club’s key players, giving coach Luciano Spalletti a wealth of options since he can play in defence, midfield or attack.
