Lotito defends Lazio tenure

Lazio President Claudio Lotito has again come out in defence of his tenure at Stadio Olimpico.

The 56-year-old took over the club in 2004 but has faced strong protests against his ownership this season from Biancocelesti fans.

However, Lotito today pointed out the Rome side's achievements during his presidency and again criticised those arguing that he should sell the club.

“There are certain people who, on their card of identity, have written ‘Profession: Fan,” Lotito said to Mediaset.

“These are the people who are trying to influence the club or, regarding myself, trying to make me sell the club.

“We have revived a club that before had a lot of debts. We have also created a great youth sector that is the envy of other clubs.

“We have brought victory to the first team too, while creating important things for the infrastructure of the club like the official radio station.”
