Immobile message to Dr Jessen

Lazio striker and Serie A Capocannoniere had some choice words for Dr Christian Jessen after he accused Italy of ordering a Coronavirus lockdown “as an excuse to have a long siesta.”

The comments were made by the celebrity doctor, who hosts UK show Embarrassing Bodies, during an interview with FUBAR Radio’s Access All Areas.

“This might be a little bit racist to say this, but do you think it’s a bit of an excuse? The Italians, any old excuse to, you know, shut down everything and stop work for a bit and have a long siesta.”

Six teams are represented in Opta’s best XI in Serie A 2019-20, with Milan left-back Theo Hernandez and Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz the only two outside the teams among the top four.

Cristiano Ronaldo is unsurprisingly on the side after his 21 goals in 22 games this term and Wojciech Szczesny is between the sticks in the top 11 this term.
