Lazio’s talismanic striker, Ciro Immobile, is eager to get back on the pitch, with a specific match in his sights according to Corriere dello Sport.
This keenly anticipated game is the Coppa Italia match on January 10, where a potential derby against Roma could be the order of the day if they progress past Cremonese. Immobile, who captains Lazio, is said to be looking to stage an early return from a right-thigh injury which has kept him sidelined.
However, health checks scheduled for today, January 3, will determine his recovery timeline more definitively. Lazio’s head coach, Maurizio Sarri, is reported to be cautious about rushing him back into action.
