Lanzini misses Dubai training trip

LanziniManuel Lanzini has not joined the first team in Dubai for ¬†five days of warm weather training and has instead been given time off ‘for family reasons’ Claret and Hugh understand.

He is thought to have returned to his native Argentina where he appeared on TV saying he would like to return to his former club River Plate where he is a fan.

Club insiders were quick to insist this is this is not a case of the South American being of home sick or a Dimi Payet situation and his comments on Tyc Sports TV were taken out of context as he was probably talking about way in the future towards the end of his career.

Meanwhile Diafra Sakho, Andy Carroll, Aaron Cresswell, Arthur Masuaku and Angelo Ogbonna have all made the trip to the Dubai Sports City.

  1. Many of these South American players often refer to the fact that they want to go back to play for their first club further down the line as their careers wind down.Its no drama filled story.After years away playing around the globe it is probably often going to be the way that they want a season or two back in their homeland before they retire.

  2. He has spent plenty of time in Dubai and probably hates it. Couldn’t blame him.
