While Maurizio Sarri insisted it was ‘nothing that serious,’ Matias Vecino is still not training with the squad due to disciplinary reasons.

The midfielder was dropped from the group for last night’s Coppa Italia win over Genoa and commented on social media about the cause behind this split.

He insisted that his “conscience is clear” and he “never disrespected anyone.”

Sarri also told the media after the 1-0 win that the situation was “not that serious” and he hoped it could be resolved.

It has never been entirely clarified what caused the row, but Vecino did deny reports it had to do with his attitude during the match against Cagliari.

However, Sky Sport Italia note that the Uruguay international was again not training with the rest of the squad today and is therefore unlikely to feature against Verona this weekend in Serie A.

This reduces the options for Lazio, who are already without Luis Alberto, Patric, Gustav Isaksen and Alessio Romagnoli.

At least there is a boost with the likely return of Mattia Zaccagni and Nicolò Casale.
