While some of our players have returned from international duties with their respective NT`s (Rocchi, De Silvestri and Kolarov) some other have departed to feature for their NT in the friendles mid-week (Carrizo, Radu, Lichtsteiner, Rozenhal,Pandev).
On the mercato front, we are still after a central midfielder and also an attacker. Options for the time being inlcude Crespo and Bogdani from Chievo, who would come as an exchange for Makinwa who is wanted by the latter club. Injuries to defendants from Milan and Juve may see Stendardo move to one of those clubs and in case of his departure, Lazio will immediately sign Romanian Moti. There is also a possibility that Juve make a bid for Ledesma, knowing that he is a bit unsettled,
On the Coppa Italia front, we will be facing Benevento who knocked out Treviso after penalties. The winner of this match will then face the winner of Atalanta – Modena.
Another new of note is the death is A.S. Roma`s president Franco Sensi. RiP.
