Lazio to forfeit Serie A?

Reports suggest Lazio are sensationally considering whether to forfeit the current Serie A campaign after their controversial defeat to Torino.

According to Premium Sport, Lazio President Claudio Lotito [pictured] feels ‘victimised’ by a ‘politically-charged’ campaign to prevent them from finishing in Serie A’s top four.

The Aquile have regularly complained about refereeing decisions going against them, and their 3-1 loss to Torino saw Iago Falque not penalised for a handball in the box and Ciro Immobile sent off for a perceived headbutt on Nicolas Burdisso after VAR had been consulted.

Boss Simone Inzaghi claimed Lazio had been “defrauded for the fourth week in a row”, while Luis Alberto suggested “people didn’t like” the thought of his side occupying a Champions League place.
