Soccer: Zaniolo vows to come back stronger after knee injury

20-year-old looks likely to miss rest of season and Euro 2020

(ANSA) - Rome, January 13 - AS Roma and Italy midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo used Twitter to pledge that he would "come back stronger than before" after suffering a cruciate-ligament injury in his right knee in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Juventus.
    The 20-year-old, widely considered Italian soccer's most promising talent, looks likely to miss the rest of the Serie A season and probably Euro 2020 too.
    The player arrived at the Villa Stuart clinic in Rome on crutches on Monday to have surgery.
