Football Live Today – Did Zaniolo Abandon His Unborn Baby?
Sara Scaperrotta, Nicolò Zaniolo’s pregnant ex-girlfriend, posted on her Instagram Stories just days before she is due to give birth.
“Tommaso is the product of the love of two people,” wrote Sara.
“He was wanted, desired and the discovery of his arrival was celebrated in an atmosphere of shared joy.”
However, she continued: “Then something changed and I suddenly found myself traveling towards parenthood alone, without the support of any kind.
“While at first, I felt fear at doing this alone and the baby missing out on a paternal figure, it quickly became disappointment, because Nicolò is missing all these emotions, discoveries, a mixture of joy and fear, all of the things you experience during pregnancy.”
“This is why I tried many times to get him involved, without success,” she then wrote. “He even blocked me from his social media channels and Whatsapp, so I faced a brick wall.”
“It was never my intention to complain or make a spectacle out of this moment, as my only objective is to ensure the best for Tommaso and a support network he can call a family,” she finished her message.
“I hope that the walls are knocked down and that Nicolò can finally find the courage to emancipate himself, to open his heart as a father and enjoy all the emotions of being a parent.”
Meanwhile, Zaniolo has returned to training after recovering from his second serious knee injury in less than a year.
Now, he is eager to begin his Roma career under new manager Jose Mourinho.
Indeed, Zaniolo shot one of the goals in Roma’s first pre-season victory with a football match score of 10-0.
Furthermore, Zaniolo wore the captain’s armband against Montecatini Calcio, in this pre-season friendly game, which was Mourinho’s first Roma match.
