Lotito: Coach soon, Candreva ours

Claudio Lotito says that Lazio have already completed Antonio Candreva’s signing and will confirm their Coach ‘by the end of the week’.

The Aquile currently have Edy Reja on their bench, but speculation has been that he could be shifted out in favour of one from Simone Inzaghi, Roberto Donadoni and Max Allegri.

Asked for comment on the situation, the club President was brief in his response.

“By the end of the week you will know the name of the Coach,” Lotito has told reporters this week at Coni’s centenary celebrations.

There, Lotito was also asked about progress in talks with Udinese to purchase the remaining 50 per cent of Antonio Candreva’s registration.

“Candreva? He has already been fully redeemed,” responded the President, on a deal that is seen to also include Dusan Basta coming to the Olimpico at a combined cost of €14.5m.

Rumours in the media have been that Lazio may then sell Candreva on, with Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli continually linked.

“Will I then sell him to De Laurentiis at Napoli? No, I have spoken to De Laurentiis about other things.”
