Amsterdam Tournament: Dirty Lazio Bastards

Posted by atleti on August 5, 2007

During yesterday’s game against Lazio, quite a few Atleti players were victims of extremely physical challenges:

Simao received a tackle that left his shoulder heavily bruised.

Ze Castro received a nasty knock (muscular pain) that has prevented him from a post-Tournament training session.

Luis Garcia was nastily lunged at by Massimo Mutarelli and had to be subbed off (after coming in as a sub for Simao). Fortunately, a week of no training should do the trick (muscular pain), according to the club’s doctor.

Reyes was carried off because of a nasty tackle on his ankle- it doesn’t seem too serious, I think. I’ll re-check a few sites to make sure.

This was a damn pre-season tourney, not a rugby scrum, for christ’s sake.


UPDATE (Good News!): Both Simao and Reyes were deemed fit enough to participate in today’s non-strenuous training session. Luis Garcia, Ze Castro, and Seitaridis, however, were left out due to injury.

    It’s difficult not to take it personally…they went after 3 key players.

    Fun fact: Lazio as a collective team likes to beat orphaned babies and personally spread the AIDS virus. And Claudio Lotito is Hitler’s direct descendant.
