Daniele De Rossi has received a pair of significant boosts during training sessions this week at Trigoria as Roma gear up for the always intense Derby della Capitale against Lazio.

Under the guidance of the 2006 World Cup winner, Roma has experienced a rejuvenation since his appointment in January, swiftly validating the club’s decision to part ways with Jose Mourinho. They’ve emerged as one of the most formidable teams in the league, firmly entrenched in the battle for a top-four finish.

Following the international break, Roma initially struggled to regain their rhythm, evident in a frustrating goalless draw with Lecce. However, all attention in the Italian capital is now focused on the imminent derby clash with Lazio, anticipated to be brimming with drama and tension.

According to reports from Voce Giallorossi, Daniele De Rossi expressed satisfaction in welcoming back Leonardo Spinazzola to the Roma squad’s training session today, as Spinazzola had been sidelined due to a recent flexor issue, which caused him to miss the match against Lecce.

Furthermore, Paulo Dybala has resumed training with the squad after returning a few days ago from his recent adductor injury.
