Newly appointed coach of Roma Eusebio Di Francesco could hand Nigerian duo Nura Abdullahi and Sadiq Umar first team opportunities at the club next season.
The duo are presently in the camp of the Rome outfit where they are currently being put through their paces by the coach, with Nura looking sharp despite the numerous injury setback he suffered last season.
Sadiq who spent last season on loan to Bologna has also been very noticeable in Roma pre season training with several pictures of him and the new coach during drills posted on the official website of the club.
The duo have endured mixed fortunes at the club since signing with Roma two summers ago with Sadiq the most fortunate as he made nine first team appearances for the team under then manager Rudi Garcia.
On his part Nura who happens to be a childhood friend to Sadiq have had to contend with a minor heart surgery, a cruciate knee ligament injury and several set backs since the duo moved from Spezia to Roma.
