Lazio youngster Mattia Peruzzi has left the club and joined Serie D side Tiferno.

As reported by Italian media outlet Primopiano.news earlier today, the 19-year-old Italian goalkeeper, who is the son of former team manager Angelo Peruzzi, has followed in his father’s footsteps and left the Biancocelesti.

The elder Peruzzi’s relationship with president Claudio Lotito collapsed, with the Lazio president refusing to offer the team manager more responsibilities, which prompted the former goalkeeper to leave the club after five years.

Angelo Peruzzi reportedly strongly wanted his son Mattia to join the club, where he is likely to gain regular first-team minutes now as he continues his development.

The 19-year-old Peruzzi made only two appearances for Alessandro Calori’s Primavera team last season, for a total of 93 minutes. He conceded one goal and kept one clean sheet in that time.

The departure of Peruzzi is therefore unlikely to make any significant differences to Calori’s preparations for next season.
