Investigation into Lotito's Juve-Inter comments

The FIGC prosecutor has reportedly opened an investigation into Lazio President Claudio Lotito’s comments about the recent Juventus-Inter match.

On April 26, a month into the lockdown, Lotito spoke to La Repubblica about the Serie A season.

“I am just one point off Juventus, and that’s just because of Juve-Inter, which come on, everyone saw.”

According to Il Tempo newspaper, this phrase peaked the interest of Federal prosecutors, who want to ask Lotito precisely what he meant.

If he was implying some sort of irregularity, then that ought to be investigated and clarified.

If not, then Lotito could face a charge of bringing the game into disrepute.

Juventus beat Inter 2-0 in a game played behind closed doors, after it had been suspended and rescheduled several times due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala scored the goals in Turin.
