Lazio handed Lazzari boost

Lazio have been handed a boost as Manuel Lazzari trained with the squad normally ahead of Sunday’s Serie A opener against Sampdoria.

There were fears Lazzari was facing a month out after he required surgery on a broken bone in his right hand.

However, the right wingback successfully came through Wednesday’s training session with a brace applied.

Gianluca Di Marzio’s website writes there is now ‘optimism’ that the 25-year-old will take part against Samp this weekend.

Failing that, Patric will fill in as Adam Marusic missed all of preseason with a knee injury.
