Lazio stay second, one point behind Juventus leaders in this year’s season that was interrupted abruptly because of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, ahead of the resumption, as Lazio expect to battle this summer for their third League title in the club’s history, there has been a troubling development.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been a significant player for Lazio, contributing four goals and five assists for Simone Inzaghi’s men in his 25 games. Now, though, Lazio is sweating over the wellbeing of Milinkovic-Savic.
Multiple reports claim the player will undergo an MRI scan due to a traumatised knee later today.
Tuttomercatoweb first reported that the midfielder was unable to complete training due to a knee problem and writes that the club expects a clear answer to the severity of the issue after the 17:00 GMT test.
Calciomercato.com then further shared alarming news about a scheduled MRI scan at Rome’s Padeia clinic, fearing the Serbian normally won’t be able to play for the first game against Atalanta on 24 June.
