Sarri and Luis Alberto Face to Face as Lazio Restart Training

Maurizio Sarri will meet his Lazio squad, including the unhappy Luis Alberto, in Formello today to restart training after a short holiday.

La Lazio Siamo Noi details how the relationship between the Italian coach and the Spanish midfielder is still fractured, with Sarri unimpressed with Luis Alberto’s temperament and the player unhappy with his lack of usage in the Italian capital. 

The arrival of Matias Vecino in the summer has left Luis Alberto relegated to the bench and the 30-year-old has only started five Serie A matches this season, mostly coming on as a substitute. 

Lazio president Claudio Lotito is willing to sell the Spanish midfielder in January and has dropped his price tag from €30m in the summer to €20m now. The player himself is ready to leave, even if the destination isn’t Sevilla. 

Market rumours suggest that Atletico Madrid are interested in picking up Luis Alberto and Sevilla are perennially interested in the midfielder.
