Lotito: 'Inzaghi to Juve? We'll see'

Lazio President Claudio Lotito was vague when asked if Simone Inzaghi will take the Juventus job. “I don’t know, we’ll have to see.”

“I don’t know,” was his response. “We’ll have to see.”

It is a step down from the version put forward by director of sport Igli Tare only a few days ago.
