Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma has decided to sever all ties with the club and start procedures to rescind his contract.
After a long squabble, which dates back to a summer contract extension dispute between club and player, he no longer wants to ply his trade there.
Ledesma had only recently been allowed back into the squad after being frozen out under president Claudio Lotito's orders. After being reintegrated, the premier asked Ledesma to apologise to the club.
That request has not gone down well and the situation has deteriorated once again. La Repubblica claims a request has been filed to the football league for the rescission, and Ledesma's agent has confirmed a course of action has been taken.
Vincenzo D'Ippolito has now revealed the player has applied to the Lega Calcio's Arbitration panel to ask for a rescission.
"Ledesma was ready to come back into the squad without signing any renewal, but when Lotito asked for an apology, the player decided to appeal. He has done it in relation to his professional and personal dignity," the agent told Ansa.it.
"He wanted to be inserted back into the squad, but not in the jumpy way in which it has happened like over the past few months where he didn't even have a rapport with the coach."
