A nine-year-old boy who was featured in a recent social media post by Roma calling upon viewers to help track down missing children has been found.
After bringing Davide Zappacosta in from Chelsea on loan, I Giallorossi used the announcement of his arrival to promote the worthy cause. The club have a significant following across multiple platforms and have used it to support numerous charities throughout the summer.
Amongst the organisations Roma have teamed up with are the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, as well as Missing Kids.
The Serie A side revealed the young boy’s discovery via their official Twitter account on Monday evening, though the original video has been removed to protect his identity.
This is not the first success the Italian outfit have had when it comes to tracking down lost youths, with one girl found in London during August.
As expected, Roma included another child alongside confirmation of Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s arrival from Arsenal on loan, a deal which was finalised on transfer deadline day.
The midfielder joins a day after the derby clash with Lazio, a match which ended with honours even as Giallorossi left back Aleksandar Kolarov slotted a penalty against his old side before Luis Alberto grabbed a leveller for the Biancocelesti.
