Reports suggest that Keita Balde Diao refused his call-up to the Lazio squad for the Coppa Italia match with Inter on Tuesday evening.

According to Il Messaggero, Coach Simone Inzaghi was infuriated by such behaviour from the 21-year-old.

His absence from the squad was officially attributed to flight problems as the Senegalese international has been competing in the Africa Cup of Nations, however these reports suggest that this was merely a cover.

It is not the first time that the player has courted controversy, as he went AWOL in the summer. Said to be trying to push for a transfer, reports indicated that Lazio were unable to contact him as he had his mobile phone switched off.
