Maurizio Sarri has some serious concerns as to the extent of the injury sustained by Merih Demiral in the clash between AS Roma and Juventus.
Despite the 1-2 win over Roma for the Bianconerri, manager Maurizio Sarri is concerned.
The victory takes his team back to the top of Serie A two points clear of closest rivals Inter. The side from Milan only managed a 1-1 Atalanta.
The young Turkish defender is a prodigious talent and was being slowly integrated into the first team.
Tonight’s game was only his fifth appearance of the season. He was having a great game, after giving his side the lead in the 3rd minute.
But, when he lept for the ball, winning a header in the process landed heavily.
The initial diagnosis is a sprain. But in an interview after the match reported by Football Italia, Sarri explains the player is enduring some concerning sensations.
“Demiral has a sprain and we won’t know any more until tomorrow morning.”
“However, the sensation we have is that it might be a serious injury.”
He was pictured after the game leaving on crutches.
