Hooligan's Daily: Portland shopping Nagbe with Atlanta interestes

Yesterday's Scores
Espanyol 0-1 Girona
(Timor 45+1')

Serie A
Lazio 1-3 Torino
(Alberto 69')-(Berenguer 54', Rincon 64', Edera 73')

Lazio players were crying foul at the end of this game, saying there's a conspiracy against them after several supposedly poor refereeing decisions went against them. Their main gripe comes from a missed handball in the penalty area at the end of the first half. Lazio players and coaches cried for handball just before half time and the ref didn't even go to review to attempt to verify their claims. I haven't been able to find video, but Twitter reactions indicate they have a case. Regardless, moments later, Ciro Immobile was sent off for violent conduct after the ref did go to video review to spot his headbutt during stoppage time. Needless to say, Torino went on to score thrice in the second half to sink the hosts without much trouble.

Headlines
The Portland Timbers are reportedly shopping midfielder Darlington Nagbe after he asked for a hefty raise in salary this winter. The USMNT player asked for his $565,000 salary to be nearly doubled to $1 million, and Portland apparently isn't prepared to handle such a steep increase in wages. They already use TAM to buy his salary down below the designated player threshold. Atlanta United is reportedly very interested in Nagbe, who has spent his entire pro career with the Timbers. He's been courted by European clubs before, as he visited Celtic last winter before choosing to return to Portland.
