Lazio defender Stefan Radu is fit enough to start against Crotone tomorrow, after recovering from a hernia operation last month.

According to a report from Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the 34-year-old Romanian centre-back has been a constant presence in squad training in Formello this week, proving his strong physical condition to coach Simone Inzaghi.
