There remains tension between the former Lazio fullback and ultras this season.
But De Rossi says, “If they were able to repair this small fracture then I'd be the happiest man in the world.
“That's because I'm in the middle between the Roma fans, who I love and have always protected me, and Kolarov, who's like a brother to me.
“The fans must trust me on this. I'm not saying he's been a Roma fan since birth, but he's one of the best professionals I know.
“He's not one of those who kisses his shirt and then backs out at the first sign of difficulty. The fans must be respected, but if this fracture was repaired then I'd be more than happy."
