Lotito: 'Lazio's defining moment'

Lazio visit Torino this evening and President Claudio Lotito sees this as “the defining moment that tells us what our ambitions can be this season.”

The Biancocelesti have slipped down the standings after their home defeat to Fiorentina, but are still in the race for third, in the Europa League quarter-final against Fenerbahce and in the Coppa Italia Final.

“This game will be the defining moment that tells us what our ambitions can be this season. I believe we are in the hands of what Pagans call Fate and Christians call Divine Providence.”

The patron also hinted that he would be interested in a summer offer for Toro defender Angelo Ogbonna.

The Italian international defender is out injured for this game which kicks off at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

“Ogbonna is a great player and being a great player he could do well at Lazio,” said Lotito.

“I have a good rapport with Torino President Urbano Cairo and we share several ideas on planning in the Lega Serie A board.”
