Hernanes given all-clear for Lazio

Hernanes has been given the all-clear to play for Lazio against Napoli on Saturday evening with a protective helmet.

The Brazilian was knocked unconscious by a clash of heads with Juventus midfielder Luca Marrone during last week’s Coppa Italia semi-final.

He had originally been ruled out for up to a month, but today’s MRI scan showed no damage and he was given permission to resume full training.

Hernanes will be able to play on Saturday evening with the aid of a protective helmet, as he has numerous stitches on his forehead.
