Lazio captain Senad Lulic is set to return to the pitch on Thursday in the Coppa Italia clash against Parma, according to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.

The report details how the 35-year-old Bosnian midfielder, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until the end of the season, finally returned to the squad last week, remaining on the bench in the thrilling 3-0 derby win over Roma.

Coach Simone Inzaghi wants to test his condition and so is set to deploy him in the second half of the cup match against Parma, who are currently 19th in Serie A after 18 games.

Lazio would look to sign a new left wing back this month if Lulic is unable to fully return to the squad, as the area is a clear issue in the squad without the Bosnian.

Lulic returned to squad training recently and is working hard to recover from his serious ankle injury.
