Luiz Felipe suffers ankle injury

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe suffered a serious injury in the right ankle during the pre-season friendly against Frosinone and must undergo tests tomorrow.

The Brazilian defender had to leave the pitch after only eight minutes of the 1-0 win, after a tough challenge by Grigoris Kastanos and could miss the start of the new campaign.

Lazio start in two weeks, as the first game against Atalanta has been postponed, and tomorrow the defender will undergo examinations to understand the extent of the injury.

Coach Simone Inzaghi was furious after the incident, as the defender was helped to the dressing room and returned on crutches at the end of the game.
