Lazio Star Feeling Better after Controversial Absence

Immobile missing the past two Italy games, in particular the Hungary one, caused some controversy, as he appeared ready to board the flight to Budapest before Lazio stepped in. The striker cleared the air and provided an update on his status to Sky during a presser for the charity event ‘Partita per la Pace.’

“I’m feeling good but it’s a little dangerous to practice and play. The doctors told me to rest, but they are always cautious. The situation is a little borderline, as it was when I left the national team. I’d like to feature against Spezia if the risk isn’t too big.”

Immobile returned on the supposed airport incident.

“Nobody influenced Roberto Mancini’s decision to rule me out. Everything happened serenely, and it was just too iffy. Truth be told, it was much ado about nothing. The picture that made the rounds was me waiting for the coach that had flown to Rome to vote. It was fortuitous. I wanted to be with the team even if I couldn’t take the field. In the end, everybody agreed to send me home and take further tests. I was the least happy among those involved because I wished to play.”

As per Corriere dello Sport, Immobile is nursing an edema in his biceps femoris muscle. The exams performed Thursday certified that it is improving. He should practice in limited capacity Friday to assess how it feels. He’ll get the start if there are no hiccups. While the striker was out, Maurizio Sarri experimented both Pedro and Matteo Cancellieri in the false-nine role.
