Pizarro 'abandons Roma training'

David Pizarro’s future at Roma is looking increasingly uncertain after an alleged training ground incident.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Chilean opted to abandon the field of play without the permission of his Coach.

While the rest of the Giallorossi squad were doing their normal warm down exercises at the end of session, it’s alleged he instead headed to the changing rooms.

Boss Luis Enrique is reported to have asked the player to come back and join his colleagues, but the midfielder didn’t return.

The Chilean international has been linked with a January move away from the capital outfit with Juve a possible destination.

Juve initially enquired about the South American’s availability during the December transfer talks which took Marco Borriello from Rome to Turin.

Pizarro, now 32, has made just seven Serie A appearances under Luis Enrique at the Stadio Olimpico so far this term.

However, he’s only started five games and he’s been replaced in two for a total of 402 minutes of League action.

Juventus see Pizarro as a possible alternative to Andrea Pirlo.
