Lazio punish Jordan Lukaku?

There are reports Jordan Lukaku was left off the Lazio bench against Juventus for disciplinary reasons.

The Belgian wing-back, the younger brother of Inter striker Romelu, was named in the squad originally for the trip to Turin.

However, he was left in the stands of the Allianz Juventus Stadium and Sky Sport Italia claim it was due to disciplinary reasons, not an injury.

It was a strong stance for coach Simone Inzaghi to take, considering he already has a decimated squad at his disposal.

This seems to have been the cause of the tension, as Inzaghi opted to give Djavan Anderson his first Serie A start in place of injured Jony and Adam Marusic.

Lukaku would normally have been next in line for the role on the left, but Inzaghi instead chose a relative debutant who usually plays on the right.

It’s rumoured Lukaku reacted angrily to the decision and was therefore sent to the stands.
