Radu excluded by Lazio

Stefan Radu has been left out of the Lazio squad for pre-season training amid reports a row saw him excluded from the squad.

Coach Simone Inzaghi named the met who are travelling to Auronzo di Cadore for the traditional training camp.

Radu is notable by his absence, as there are growing reports the breakdown in communication would spell the end of a long and happy rapport.

The Romania international left-back came to Lazio in January 2008 and remained there for the rest of his career.

However, according to Il Messaggero newspaper, Lazio left Radu out of pre-season altogether because of a row he had in the locker room.

It’s claimed Wallace and Bastos were joking and laughing in the shower after a defeat, which prompted a furious response from the veteran.

Director of sport Igli Tare is said to have told Radu off for this, at which point the defender decided he would no longer play through pain for Lazio.

He has now been excluded from the pre-season squad list, although Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are in there despite transfer speculation.

Lazio squad for pre-season training: Adamonis, Alia, Guerrieri, Proto; Acerbi, Jorge Silva, Lazzari, Luiz Felipe, Marusic, Patric, Vavro, Wallace; André Anderson, Cataldi, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic, Milinkovic, Parolo; Adekanye, Caicedo, Correa, Immobile
