Lazio to honour Chinaglia

Lazio will pay tribute to Giorgio Chinaglia ahead of tonight’s game with Napoli and 1974 Scudetto-winning captain Pino Wilson will be in the stands.

The Biancocelesti legend died of a heart attack in Florida last Sunday and his original Number 9 jersey from the title-winning campaign will be displayed in the centre-circle.

There will also be a minute’s silence before kick-off and Lazio will wear black armbands.

Giorgio Chinaglia Junior, the striker’s son, will sit next to President Claudio Lotito as a guest of the club.

Wilson, the captain of that 1974 team, is going to be in the Curva Nord with the ultras.

“It is going to be a wonderful moment, because we’re returning to the place that was our companion in that journey. I will also have Giancarlo Oddi and Mario Facco with me,” said Wilson.
