Lazio team doctor Roberto Bianchini has spoken out on the injuries suffered by Antonio Candreva and Miroslav Klose in order to quell speculation that there could be more to the story than is being reported by the club.

Candreva attended Lazio's 3-0 win over Varese in the Coppa Italia which plays down fears that his injury may not be genuine, however, a mild injury to his left thigh could sideline him for up to three weeks. Bianchini was hesitant to put a timeline on his recovery until further assessments are carried out.

Stefano Pioli revealed in his press conference that Miroslav Klose was unable to feature against Varese due to back pain. Latest reports speculate that the German will return to training on Friday and is currently in Germany to receive specialist treatment from his own doctor. Bianchini did confirm that Klose was suffering from minor back pain.

Ederson was substituted at half-time in the Varese game, and it appears he may be injured once again. He felt pain in the rectus femoris of his left thigh, so the fear is that he has suffered a thigh strain, although he will need to be assessed tomorrow. It will be a nervous wait for the Brazilian - if it is indeed a strain to the rectus femoris, he will be out for a minimum of 2-3 weeks and potentially months depending on the severity of the injury.
