Lazio: Month out for Lazzari?

Lazio could be without new signing Manuel Lazzari for a month after he reportedly fractured a metacarpal bone in his right hand.

According to Il Tempo, Lazzari pulled up midway through Lazio’s friendly with their Primavera team on Sunday morning.

The newspaper adds he will undergo surgery in the coming hours, which will keep him sidelined for around a month.

Assuming that recovery time is correct, the 25-year-old will miss the Aquile’s Serie A openers against Sampdoria and city rivals Roma.

Lazio building towards success

The Biancocelesti consistently seem to be on the verge of greatness, but Sam Wilson feels it's an exciting time to be a Lazio fan.

Arguably, very few sides have been closer to deserving a place in the Champions League over the past few seasons than Lazio. In the 2017-18 season, the club missed out on fourth spot after a devastating loss to Inter on the final day of the season, whilst the last campaign ended in a bittersweet manner, finishing eighth in Serie A whilst lifting the Coppa Italia trophy.
