Off the pitch, Renato Sanches spends most of his time in the infirmary. Not very successful in Paris, the former Bavarian tried to rebuild his career at AS Roma where he was loaned last summer but was overtaken by his fragility.

His playing time since his arrival in the Eternal City has been sluggish. Since the start of the campaign, the Portuguese has had to make do with seven small appearances for just 149 minutes of play.

“Renato Sanches is a player who is too often uncertain. It’s difficult to understand. Bayern Munich did not understand, neither did PSG. We get tired of trying to understand”José Mourinho recently complained about him.

During the match between AS Roma and Fiorentina, Italian TV captured a discussion between the player and Jonathan Ikoné. An exchange during which we learn that Sanches believes himself to be the victim of a curse. La Repubblica further claims that the Lisbon native called on a sorcerer to overcome this evil spell. Information that the person concerned denies.
