Rocchi out for a month

Lazio captain Tommaso Rocchi has been ruled out for a month with

a fractured hand bone.

The forward suffered the injury during his side’s 3-0 home

victory over Udinese in Serie A on Tuesday.

Lazio made the announcement of the injury on Wednesday, adding

that the 35-year-old will be able to return to competitive action

in four weeks’ time.

“He (Rocchi) suffered a blunt trauma to the hand resulting in a

fracture of the fifth metacarpal (bone),” reads a statement from

Lazio.

“A plaster cast has been put on and, unless there are

complications, he will be able to resume full competition in a

month.”
