Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi will need to mend the relationship between Spanish midfielder Luis Alberto and the Biancocelesti’s management after the Spaniard’s recent social media rant, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Il Messaggero.
The report details how the 28-year-old, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, complained publicly about the team’s purchase of a personalised airplane, suggesting that there was money for the aircraft but not for players’ wages.
The Roman side’s president Claudio Lotito and sporting director Igli Tare were furious with the outburst, immediately dropping the player from the squad.
As time as gone on, it has become clear that there is no definitive strategy in place currently, except a large fine. He is also unlikely to feature against Crotone this weekend.
Luis Alberto is very loyal to coach Simone Inzaghi, the report continues, and the Italian has successfully acted as a mediator in the past.
Tare in particular feels betrayed by the outburst, and so Inzaghi will need to carefully manage the complicated situation as he looks to mend the rifts between Luis Alberto and the management.
