Luis Alberto did not train with the Lazio squad yesterday and is now in doubt for the upcoming match against FC Midtjylland.
The 30-year-old Spaniard has had a reduced role under Maurizio Sarri this season and only made three Serie A starts, mostly being used as a super sub in the second half of matches. Some media reports recently suggested that Luis Alberto is unhappy with the situation, again linking him with a move to the perennially interested Sevilla.
As reported by La Repubblica (via LazioNews24), Luis Alberto is currently suffering from a slight hip muscle strain following a knock in training last week. He’s not at his best condition and could sit out the upcoming Europa League clash with FC Midtjylland, a must win game for the Biancocelesti.
Luis Alberto has started all four Europa League outings so far this season but could be left on the bench for the match, a game Lazio are desperate to win as they fight for a spot in the Round of 16.
