Lazio defender Stefan Radu carried out a light jog in today’s training session in Formello, a week after his inguinal hernia surgery, according to a report from Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today.

The report details how the 34-year-old Romanian centre back, who is contracted to the Roman club until the end of the season, carried out the jog in trainers today alongside an athletic coach.

The Biancocelesti hope that Radu will be able to return in a few weeks’ times, before the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Bayern Munich.

In regards to the rest of the training session, coach Simone Inzaghi postponed the tactical exercises until tomorrow afternoon, instead doing a warm-up, ball possession and the final training match today.

The 44-year-old Italian coach now needs to decide on a defense in the upcoming match against Bologna, with Francesco Acerbi certain to start.

Patric and Musacchio will be competing for a spot on the right side of the back three, and Wesley Hoedt could also return to the starting line-up.
