Serie B: Lotito slams 'crazy' Ventura

It looks as if Gian Piero Ventura is getting the sack after Salernitana failed to qualify for the promotion play-offs, as President Claudio Lotito was caught on camera calling the coach ‘crazy.’

The former Italy tactician had been tasked with taking Salernitana into Serie A, or at the very least the promotion play-offs.

They had been in pole position last night, until a shock 2-1 home defeat to Spezia.

President Lotito, who owns both Salernitana and Lazio, was caught on camera by Il Tempo reporters at a restaurant in Rome discussing the game with a collaborator.

“This piece of ****… This guy is crazy. He took Akpa out in midfield and ruined everything. Always wanting to play this Maistro fellow…”

Salernitana had taken the lead, only to be overturned in the final minute to lose 2-1.
