Roma are yet to decide whether Georginio Wijnaldum should undergo an operation or take a much more conservative therapy.
According to what is reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Georginio Wijnaldum has not made any plan to undergo an operation after a test on Sunday found out that he had sustained a fracture on his right foot’s tibia during a training session recently.
Per the report, the player has two options in front of him, with one method including an operation that could keep him on the sideline for two and a half months and the alternative way including conservative therapy that would keep him out of the action for at least three months.
Roma are currently taking time before deciding on what should be the process of recovery for the Dutch midfielder. The Netherlands hope to get him fit for the upcoming FIFA World Cup. But there is also the involvement of Paris Saint-Germain as they are the parent club of Wijnaldum.
Roma signed the 31-year-old from the French capital on a season-long loan deal plus the right of redemption. It is said that a clash with Felix Afena-Gyan led to the injury of Wijnaldum during one of the latest training sessions. Since the discovery of the cause of Wijnaldum’s injury, Afena-Gyan’s social media accounts have reportedly been flooded with vile and racist comments.
