FIGC opens investigation into Lazio’s COVID test results

The Italian FA (FIGC) has launched an investigation into Lazio after questions marks arose following the club’s announcement that Ciro Immobile was “unavailable” for the upcoming Champions League clash against Zenit.

The Italian striker featured against Torino on Sunday — just a few days after being held out of last Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Brugge due to testing positive for COVID, which the Biancolesti deemed a “false positive.”

Due to the curious nature of the absences, the FIGC launched an investigation into the club.

The governing body of Italian football officially announced today that, “The Federal Prosecutor has opened an investigation into Lazio to ascertain whether or not there have been any violations regarding the health protocols aimed at containing the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“We have ordered an inspection of Lazio’s training center, Formello, to verify compliance with the health protocols and to speak with President Claudio Lotito and Doctor Ivo Pulcini. We will also acquire the reports of the COVID tests carried out before the matches between Brugge-Lazio and Torino-Lazio.”
