Francesco Totti is on the road to recovery after a thigh strain, though Roma medics warn he’ll be out for a while yet.
He has been out of action since being diagnosed with a right thigh strain on October 22.
“This morning, as part of his recovery program, Francesco Totti - with the agreement of the AS Roma medical staff - underwent a scan and had a check-up with Professor Mariani,” read a statement.
“Results showed the player’s fitness has improved and he will increase his workload on the field from tomorrow. He will undergo further tests in around seven days.”
The original estimate for Totti to recover from this injury was 30-40 days.
