De Martino: 'Lazio would have won without COVID'

Communication director Stefano De Martino said Lazio ‘would have won the Scudetto’ if last season wouldn’t have been interrupted due to COVID-19.

Lazio followed Juventus in Serie A until March but came back a different team after the lockdown period in Italy.

The Aquile eventually finished fourth in the League with five points up to the Old Lady, but De Martino is sure it would have been different without the break.

“President Claudio Lotito and the club have built a group with a total commitment,” he told Lazio Style Channel. “Lazio are a healthy team, but we have always been in the trenches.

“If it has not been for COVID-19, I believe the championship last season would have been awarded to Lazio.

“The pace was unstoppable, and the dressing room had gained great certainties. The group could have prepared a match per week and I’m convinced it would have gone differently.

“The current championship is very open and interesting. All the teams are valid and competitive, but Lazio will always go on the pitch to give their all."
