Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha is asking coach Simone Inzaghi for more playing time after returning from a knee injury.

According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 25-year-old Albanian shot-stopper is hoping for more minutes after recently recovering from a knee issue.

His starting spot this season has mostly been taken by Spanish veteran Pepe Reina, with the Biancocelesti coach appreciating the Spaniard’s experience and ability to play with the ball at his feet.

Inzaghi is happy to relaunch Strakosha and give him more minutes, potentially in the upcoming games against Juventus, Crotone or Bayern Munich, but much depends on the player.

The 25-year-old Albanian’s performances have been inconsistent this campaign and he’ll need to prove himself in the coming matches.

Strakosha’s contract with the Roman club expires at the end of next season, so the next few months will be decisive in deciding his future.
