  16/12/2012: Ruzzi: There is no problem between Zarate and Petkovic
email print  
Before Lazio’s game last night the biggest Italian media reported for another crisis in the Petkovic – Zarate relations. The reason - the Argentinean was not on the bench. And with other striking options Libor Kozak and Rocchi being out of the game, Zarate was expected to be called up. Reports from Formello also stated the forward will be included in the group, but he left the training camp Friday afternoon, before the coach announced the called up.

Zarate’s agent Ruzzi hurried to put out any rumors of the quarrel: “I want to say there is no problem with Petkovic! Zarate had a complication with his recent injury and decided with the coach not to risk.”

Despite Mauri’s agent diplomatic moves, the tension is still high around the forward. Rumors are Lazio will try to sell Zarate, but the player is aiming at high level clubs, dismissing interest from some Russian clubs.
