  10/12/2014: Injury crisis deepens at Lazio
email print  
Stefan Radu is in serious doubt for Atalanta having suffered a muscle injury in training yesterday. 

Stefano Pioli was hoping to count on the Romanian defender as muscle injuries continue to plague Lazio, but having felt some pain in training yesterday, Radu was hauled off the field as a precaution. The pain has not subsided overnight, and if a muscle injury is confirmed, it is very likely that Radu has played his last game of 2014.

There were some curious absentees from both the Varese and Parma squads last week and as time goes by, it is becoming more apparent that the injury crisis at Lazio has been played down. It was revealed on LazioStyle Radio yesterday that Lucas Biglia missed training as he was suffering from fatigue, but it is being reported that the Argentine midfield picked up an adductor injury last week and played through the pain against Parma.

As Abdoulay Konko and Bruno Pereirinha engage in a fitness battle to be ready for Atalanta, Senad Lulic becomes the favourite to be handed the left-back position at the weekend.

Interestingly, both Lulic and Stefano Mauri have been spared from participating in a particular workout today, which could suggest that the club are worried about the recent spate of muscle injuries and are in a situation whereby they feel it is better to ease the training intensity of certain individuals.
