UEFA investigating Lazio: the latest
In addition to Adam Marusic – who was sent off in the second leg of the Europa League Round of 32 clash against Sevilla – Lazio are being investigated by UEFA. As reported on their official website this morning, the Biancocelesti will be questioned for racist behaviour during the match in Spain. This was the match which saw Simone Inzaghi’s side crash out of the competition. It was currently unknown if the investigations were linked, but we now have some further light on the subject. “Evidently, there has been some confusion with the news report. With Marusic, there is a problem related to the foul committed in the field against Sevilla which led to his red card. With Lazio, in the guest sector in Spain, some fans have made a fascist salute,” stated Lazio lawyer Gian Michele Gentile. Both cases will be dealt with by UEFA’s Control, Ethics, and Disciplinary Body on March 28.
