Radja Nainggolan: Salah is an important player
Roma and Belgium international midfielder Radja Nainggolan spoke about Mohamed Salah’s absence ahead of derby of the capital city on Sunday.
The Giallorossi come into the game without the services of Mohamed Salah, who sustained an ankle injury, after a strong challenge from Thomas Vermaelen in a training session last Wednesday.
“Looking at the table, both teams can take motivation from being able to cut the gap with the leader,” Nainggolan told Sky Sports Italia. “It’s always an important game – a win would be massive for both sides.”
“Salah is an important player, but in this kind of match whoever comes in to replace him will be determined to do well,” the Belgian answered when he was asked about Salah’s injury.
The Egyptian winger will be sidelined for 3 weeks and is set to miss Roma’s upcoming league games against Lazio, AC Milan, and league leaders Juventus.
Roma are currently second in Serie A with 29 points and will face fourth-placed Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday in the 15th round of the Serie A.
