Lazio defender Paolo Negro has been left out of the squad list for Biancocelesti's home match against Messina.

Negro recently claimed that Lazio have neglected to pay his salary for the last few months and although Negro has not taken legal action, this is believed to be one reason why the 32-year-old is not included in the squad.

"Negro has been put on the sidelines," said his agent Tiberio Cavalleri.

"When he (Negro) was preparing himself for the last training session the coach told him the news.

"We have asked for him to be included because that clearly was the wrong decision."

It has been rumoured that Negro's exclusion was ordered by club president Claudio Lotito as a disciplinary measure over the allegations over pay.
