As for Fabian Ruiz and Insigne, both will be re-evaluated after tomorrow’s training in anticipation of Sunday’s match against Lazio. On the presence of the Spanish midfielder Luciano Spalletti spoke yesterday at the conference (“Fabian because he had a small problem: by making him play, I risked him for Sunday. Better to say it right away, otherwise a case comes out. I didn’t play it, maybe in 10-15 minutes he risked getting hurt and skipping Lazio. So instead he can play “) while the chances of seeing the captain on the field are rising but everything will depend on the answers that his knee will give in the next two sessions.

LARSEN – Jens Stryger is back in the group Larsen. Yesterday, the Dane protagonist of a tug-of-war with Udinese for the refusal of the renewal of the contract, carried out the scheduled training session together with his teammates. This news, however, does not suggest any brightening on the horizon as regards its contractual position. In fact, explains the Veneto messenger: “Not summoned to Turin, Larsen should not find a place even with Genoa and in the next matches, waiting for the winter transfer session, given the hard line taken by the company that has decided not to use the Dane’s performances until a possible signature on renewal. However, pending possible developments, the return to the group of the winger may be a signal to Larsen, who yesterday took part in the whole session dedicated to the technique carried out at Bruseschi under the careful direction of Luca Gotti. The coach followed the training step by step having everyone available, and from today he will fine-tune the tactics to challenge Genoa with the intent of putting the classification back on track with the three points “.

So today The Gazzetta dello Sport on the possible news of Gotti’s training for his Udinese: “The German of Serbian origin was born an attacking midfielder and by his own admission prefers to play as close as possible to the opponent’s goal, but he was also tried in the position of indoor. Does it make sense that he is identified as the man who can change the inertia of the season in the nerve center of the pitch? The talent is there, no doubt about it. The boy also has a lot of it ”.
