Roma had to call in the Italian bomb squad to their training ground this week after a number of unexploded Second World War devices were found.
The club tweeted a picture on Saturday of several devices being removed from their base in Trigoria this week.
The bombs were found buried beneath the turf during work to building new pitches at their training complex.
Italian outlet Il Messagero reported that as many as 20 devices were found and the Italian army had to be called in.
Roma tweeted: “Well, this doesn’t happen every day… a big thank you to the Italian army and their bomb squad, after they safely and successfully removed a number of devices dating back to the Second World War from the club’s training centre at Trigoria this week!”
On the pitch, the club have enjoyed a strong start to the Serie A season and are just three points off league leaders AC Milan.
Surprisingly, their top scorer this season is former Arsenal and Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
He has netted five times and also added four assists in eight games played.
Paulo Fonseca’s side travel to Napoli on Sunday in what is sure to be an emotional night for the club following the unexpected death of club legend Diego Maradona.
