Keita not happy with Lazio

Keita Baldé Diao was left out of the Italian Super Cup squad, which he did not know how to react to.

The striker has handed in a transfer request following the fact he was not featured in the Italian Super Cup clash against Juventus.

Lazio claimed the player had a muscular problem, but Keita has taken it to social media to deny those claims.

“The lack of a call-up for the Super Cup Final has profoundly hurt me,” wrote Keita on Twitter.

“It is the first important match of the season, for which I had prepared and was ready for action.

“The decision made by the club, which evidently had nothing to do with purely sporting criteria, puts me in a psychologically uncomfortable position and right now I don’t know how to evaluate the consequences of that.”

The Old Lady has offered around €15m for the forward, but the Aquile want over €20m.
