Cicinho ready for Roma return

The 29-year-old has been out of action since March due to a serious knee injury.

Cicinho insists he will be fit for Roma’s game against Milan on October 18.

“I feel good. I am ready. I feel like I am improving day by day. It’s clear that I lack the rhythm of regular football,” Cicinho told

“I will need some games before I am able to return to being in peak condition, but I have put the worst behind me. The day of my re-entry is ever closer.

“I don’t know if Ranieri will make me play in Milan. I hope that I’ll at least be on the bench, so I can breathe in the atmosphere of a real game.

“To say that I can’t wait to play would be obvious, but it’s really like this,” Cicinho concluded.
