Lotito: Stadium laws need to change

Lazio President Claudio Lotito has hit out at current legislation, claiming that Italian clubs need to start owning their own stadiums.

The Biancocelesti, of course, share their current home ground with rivals Roma, and of the top clubs in Serie A, only Juventus own, and reap the rewards, of their home ground.

And the capital club's President has insisted that if teams on the peninsula are to challenge in Europe, that needs to change.

“Italy has remained cast in the legislation regarding laws to own stadiums,” he told reporters.

“There are too many constraints and I cannot see a way out.

“We are not talking about shortening the rules, but to put Italian teams in a position where they can challenge in Europe.

“We need to eliminate this shameful bureaucracy.”
