Roma: Osvaldo punched Lamela!

There is controversy at Roma, as the club suspended Pablo Daniel Osvaldo for punching teammate Erik Lamela.

The two strikers came to blows in the locker room after Friday night’s 2-0 defeat to Udinese at the Stadio Friuli.

“There was this disrespectful gesture from Osvaldo towards a teammate and, on request of the Coach, the player will be sanctioned,” director Franco Baldini told Roma Channel.

It’s reported Luis Enrique asked for Osvaldo to be fined and suspended for 10 days, so he will miss the game against his former club Fiorentina.

Although Osvaldo plays for Italy, he was born and raised in Argentina, so could communicate with Argentine teammate Lamela.

Baldini also commented on reports of his own row with Enrique.

“I don’t think it’s a big problem if two people have different opinions when it comes to achieving the same objective. It’s just a chance to discuss.”
