Among the happiest notes to take from this Matchday 11 Serie A TIM clash between Lazio-Spal – beyond the result and the team’s performance – is the fact that Jordan Lukaku has finally recovered.
The Belgian wing-back entered the field in the audience’s applause in the second half of the game, when he took off Lulic in the 63′. A player truly missed down that left flank to challenge Senad Lulic and keep him on his toes, after 5 months away from the pitch, it was a good performance from the player.
“My first game after 5 months, thanks for the support”, were his words published on social media to fans. He will have to keep putting a few minutes in his legs before he can get back to full speed (starting from the bench and training hard), but Simone Inzaghi now has an extra arrow in his bow to rely on.
