10 redundant Lazio players still remain at the club, having failed to find a move away in the summer window.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) yesterday, the biggest names that failed to secure a transfer this summer are Jony, Riza Durmisi and Jordan Lukaku.
Jony returned from his loan spell with Osasuna and did not impress coach Maurizio Sarri, so was left off the Serie A squad registration list before the match against Empoli.
Lukaku was always out of the plan and was never even considered by the 62-year-old Italian coach; Bobby Adekanye was in the same situation as Lukaku, not even being thought of by Sarri for the Lazio squad.
Other redundant Lazio players include winger Cristiano Lombardi – who is perennially injured – Alessandro Rossi – who was close to a move to a Serie C side before it collapsed – Luca Falbo, Alessandro Cerbara, Jorge Silva and Patryk Dziczek.
All of these players will work in the Training Centre in Formello at different times than the rest of the players and will work with an athletic trainer. They’ll also have access to a physiotherapist and the other professional staff members in Formello.
