  07/07/2012: Matuzalem misses medical
email print  
Speculation is rife that Matuzalem's career as a Lazio player is coming to an end after the volatile Brazilian failed to turn up for pre-season training.

The squad met new coach Vladimir Petkovic on what was officially the first day back - they received medicals in preparation for Monday's trip to Auronzo di Cadore.

Mauro Zarate was late, but eventually arrived. For once, it was no fault of his own as his local airport in Argentina was forced to close following protests. Zarate has since undergone a medical and should be bound for Auronzo di Cadore.

Matuzalem's future is now unknown and the media are suggesting that he may be sent to his former club, Brescia. Last season, Juventus were linked with a move for Matuzalem and this may be an opportunity for them to reignite their interest as Vladimir Petkovic is said to be incredibly annoyed with the situation.
