Roma could regret allowing Marco Borriello to leave on loan to Juventus after fellow forward Pablo Osvaldo suffered a muscular injury in training on Wednesday.
Less than 24 hours after Borriello’s move to Turin had been officially confirmed, Osvaldo broke down in a session at Trigoria.
"Osvaldo left the session early because of a suspected injury to the flexor muscles in his right thigh, the severity of which will be evaluated in the next 48 hours,” a statement on the Giallorossi’s official website read.
However, given that the Argentine-born Italy international had to be stretchered from the field, it appears likely that he will play no part in Sunday’s Serie A clash with Chievo at the Stadio Olimpico.
The 25-year-old striker has been in terrific form for Luis Enrique’s side this term, having already netted seven goals in 15 league appearances, though he was involved in a dressing-room bust-up with team-mate Erik Lamela after the defeat to Udinese at the end of November.
