UEFA Will Not Allow Midfielder Zaniolo to Play Even If He Recovers


Many European clubs have asked UEFA to review their registration process and to allow the possibility of changing one or two players on the list presented at the end of the transfer market in January.

But Il Tempo maintains that the European Football Association in Nyon opposes the solution.

This means that Roma coach Paulo Fonseca will have to cope without the excluded trio Zaniolo, Davide Zappacosta and Juan Jesus.

Even if Nicolò Zaniolo had to return from injury, UEFA reportedly would not allow Roma to register a midfielder for the Europa League.

Zaniolo was excluded from the list of players eligible for the UEFA tournament after suffering an injury in January and was subsequently excluded for the remainder of the season

The Portuguese now hoped to get the youngster back for the 16th round against Seville, but UEFA was not willing to accept the changes, which meant that Zaniolo and Zappacosta could only return to Serie A.

But a forced break could mean that Italy will be back in time in the event of a resumption, and the return of football seems to be some 40 days away.
