A crucial showdown between two teams battling to hold on to — or to push their way into — European qualification places is likely to be at least somewhat overshadowed by off-the-pitch controversy when Inter Milan hosts SS Lazio on Sunday, in a game that could go a long way toward determining those European slots. But the seemingly endless drama involving Inter’s contentious Argentine star striker Mauro Icardi, which appeared as if it was finally reaching an end, according to Calcio Mercato, flared up yet again when Inter’s Coach Luciano Spalletti refused to include Icardi in the side. Inter Milan will face Lazio in a game that will live stream from the San Siro.

Icardi has not played for Inter since February 9, as SB Nation reported, and even refused to fly to Vienna, Austria, with the team for a UEFA Europa League match against Rapid Wien. Icardi claimed an injury, but a contract dispute appeared to be at the heart of Icardi’s conflict with Inter management.
Icardi had returned to the squad this week, and participated in training — but for reasons that Football Italia called “unclear,” Spalletti left Icardi out of the side for Sunday’s match anyway.
According to a separate Football Italia account, however, Icardi refused to apologize to his teammates for his long holdout, and that refusal is what led Spalletti to keep the Argentine on the bench.
