  20/06/2011: Zauri and Iannarilli eyeing Roman returns
email print  
Luciano Zauri and Antony Iannarilli want to return to Rome if they are guaranteed some playing time.
Both cases are complex but it is the case of the former that would worry fans the most. Luciano Zauri is infamous for causing severe problems in the dressing room during Delio Rossi's reign and ever since, he is the player you would be placing bets on to leave Lazio in every transfer window since. However, Zauri is effectively a Lazio player as it stands and it is up to Claudio Lotito to find a suitable solution. In saying that, there may be room for Zauri in Rome.

Last season, he was shipped out after he was tested in pre-season and was ultimately found wanting. Lionel Scaloni was preferred as cover for both flanks but considering the Argentine is contemplating a return to Argentina, Zauri may well prove to be a necessary quick fix.

As for Iannarilli, the problem for him is that Lazio technically do not own him. 50% of his rights were purchased by the lowly Isola Liri last summer and after having a decent spell at the club, they may well try to keep him. Nevertheless, Iannarilli is hoping that Lazio redeem the remainder of his rights as the goalkeeper fancies being Lazio's third choice goalkeeper. Considering Lazio's goalkeeping controversies, that is not a far-fetched reality by any means.

It wil be interesting to see what will be done with two players who could be useful but are not particularly wanted.
