Reports in Il Tempo today claim that Lazio striker Helder Postiga’s season could be over without him even having appeared for the club.
The experienced Portuguese forward only arrived at the Stadio Olimpico in January, from Valencia.
While it was known at the time that he was injured, it was expected that he would be in contention for a place in Edy Reja’s squad before too long.
Now however, it is reported that the 31-year-old has developed a back problem which could rule him of the Biancocelesti’s remaining 13 Serie A games this term.
