Luis Alberto left out against Crotone?

Lazio seem set to leave Luis Alberto out of the match against Crotone, according to Il Messaggero.

With Sergej Milinkovic-Savic returning from the national break positive for coronavirus, the newspaper reports Simone Inzaghi insists on having Luis Alberto available for the match against the Rossoblu.

But the report claims President Claudio Lotito and sporting director Igli Tare want to punish Luis Alberto for his comments about the missing salaries at the Aquile.

The coronavirus trouble at Lazio continues after the international break, but Lucas Leiva has returned and could line up with Andreas Pereira and Akpa Akpro in the middle.

Il Messaggero fears another hidden positive test for Luiz Felipe, but the medical staff at Lazio insists the defender is out with an injured ankle.

Inzaghi wants to have Luis Alberto available, but could have to cope without the Spanish midfielder against newly promoted Crotone, as the club reportedly wants to set an example.
