Lazio announce Manuel Lazzarri injury after Italy squad withdrawal

Lazio have announced Manuel Lazzarri left Italy's squad due to injury.

Medical tests have confirmed that injury forced Lazzari to withdraw from the Azzurri training camp in Coverciano last week.

The 28-year-old Italian full back unexpectedly pulled out of the training camp alongside Biancocelesti teammate Mattia Zaccagni, leading many to suggest that the pair were seeking to go on holiday early.

But Lazio say medical tests carried out confirmed that Lazzari has suffered an acute groin injury, which occurred during his last training session in Coverciano. He'll now undergo a recovery programme.
