Sky - Joao Mario stopped in training not because of injury but because of attitude and lack of effort
Earlier today, Joao Mario had to stop training prematurely and reports suggested that perhaps the midfielder has suffered an injury.
But according to Sky, the reason is that Luciano Spalletti did not appreciate the player’s effort in training. The coach did not see Joao Mario training with the right intensity and did not like his attitude on the pitch. Spalletti then asked him to sit out for the day and he can come back tomorrow morning.
