Former Italian Defender Calisti Backs Lazio to Keep Manuel Lazzari

Lazio versatile talent Manuel Lazzari could be departing from the club as soon as the upcoming summer transfer window.

Lazzari has been linked with a move away from Lazio, especially as the club looks to haul in much-needed funds.

The Italian wing-back proved to be a key player for now-former Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi over the years, but he may not be a starter under new Biancocelesti manager Maurizio Sarri.

Still, former Lazio defender Ernesto Calisti is advocating for the club to keep Lazzari, which he detailed why during a recent talk with the Italian-based outlet TuttoMercatoWeb Radio (via La Lazio Siamo Noi).

I’d keep him. Everyone says he’s not suited to the four-man defense. Surely he can play there; he has to apply himself more.

I would keep such a decisive player; he can be trained for the four-man defense.

Lazzari currently has three more years remaining on his contract with the Rome-based side.
