“You can’t stop the wind, just make him lose time”


Harm and mockery. The (bad) news on Sunday evening was not so much the defeat with the Juventus, however negative in terms of ranking, as much as the injury of Nicolò Zaniolo. The roughly 60 meters of overhanging slalom broke off between de Ligt and Rabiot, ripped apart by a belligerent scream that immediately bode well. Indeed, the news was fatal for Roma fans but especially for Zaniolo: rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee with associated meniscal injury. The hands of Professor Pier Paolo Mariani intervened on the angular ginglimo of the Giallorossi talent on Monday, thus starting the long and leaden months of rehabilitation.

The importance of Nicolò Zaniolo in Rome immediately triggered the tran tran the media between radio and social media, rightly diminishing the defeat with the leaders, relegating her to the background and the proximity of Euro 2020 immediately made one think of the comparison with Totti who, after Vanigli’s uneducated entry (litote) on 19 February 2006, he risked seeing the last World opportunity gone. Different injury (fracture at the level of the middle third of the left fibula with associated capsule-ligament complex lesion of the left instep) but still serious and 113 days passed between that February 19 and June 12, 2006, the day of the onset of the ( World Champion) Italy by Lippi and Ghana at the HDI-Arena in Hanover, where Totti was deployed from the first minute (with a game in the middle between Lodigiani on April 27, 2006, the return of the Italian Cup final with Inter l ’11 May, a month before the start of the World Cup, and a segment with Milan on the last day of the championship).

Can Zaniolo hope? 149 days left (from today, 15 January) to Mancini’s European debut of Italy against Turkey, scheduled for 12 June (what a coincidence …). Five months. Will they be enough for Massas talent? In the six years seasoned with 19 Giallorossi crusaders thefirm has managed to Rudiger, who took the field with the First Team after 136 days (operation on June 12, 2016 and on the field on October 26, 2016 with Sassuolo), in Mario Rui, returned after 121 days (operation on August 5, 2016, call for the derby on December 4, 2016) and at Luca Pellegrini, on the pitch with Primavera after 140 days (operation on July 15, 2017, on the pitch on December 2, 2017, the day on which he suffered a fracture of the kneecap during Roma-Milan and which forced him to make another long stop ). Longer times Emerson Palmieri (157 days) e Karsdorp (202 days), without going to count Strootman and Florenzi, repeat offenders.

The times are there, if you want, but they are there. Does it make sense to force? Yes and no. The call of the “home” European (remember to be for this traveling edition) can play a primary role, but the other side of the coin is: Nicolò Zaniolo, 20 years old, will he have the opportunity to play other European and world championships? The answer is certainly yes. The hope is that Zaniolo will concentrate fully on the recovery, done well and with diligence, and that he can return to the field stronger than before, but with a thrifty and sensible recovery. Someone sang “you can’t stop time, just make him waste time “, and it is what Nicolò represents: an impetuous wind, with high knots, which in the narrow circle of mail will start to surprise Rome, Italy, Europe and the world.
