Lazio pray the injuries away

Lazio President Claudio Lotito reportedly brought in a priest to bless the squad and training ground after a series of injuries.

According to Il Messaggero newspaper, the patron called in the Catholic priest to give a blessing to the training facilities and even dressing rooms at the Formello centre.

The Aquile have been hit by a series of injuries, most of them muscular, that contributed to the early Europa League exit at the hands of Sevilla.

This is not the first time Lazio have asked for help from higher up, as a priest also blessed the training ground in 2009, 2010 and 2013.
