Roma have received good news ahead of Tuesday´s Champions League clash at Manchester United with midfielder Simone Perrotta available to play.

World Cup winner Perrotta injured his thigh during Saturday´s 4-1 league defeat to Internazionale , but the Ashton-Under-Lyne born player has been included in Luciano Spalletti´s squad for their Group F encounter at Old Trafford.

"I really want to play," said Perrotta. "I felt a pain in my thigh but I will undergo further tests and I hope to be available to play."
