AS Roma director Morgan De Sanctis is in intensive care following a car accident in the Italian capital on Tuesday night.

The 43-year-old former Italy goalkeeper was rushed to hospital after a serious incident on Rome’s busy Via Cristoforo Colombo, Italian media reports said.

De Sanctis underwent an operation on an abdominal haemorrhage, where his spleen was removed.
