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.

The Aquile tactician has been with the club since 2016 and his contract is set to expire in June 2021, but the Corriere dello Sport claims President Claudio Lotito is ready to offer him new terms at the Olimpico.

Will Lazio go to the next level?

With Champions League qualification within reach, Lee Bushe wonders if Lazio will reinvest in a deeper squad or carry on penny-pinching…

Barring a catastrophe, Lazio should qualify for the Champions League come the end of the season. Booking their spot in Europe’s elite competition is an impressive achievement, but they will feel slightly disappointed that they weren’t able to push Juventus all the way in the end.

Some Serie A identities are innate

Just as a leopard can't change its spots, some Serie A clubs simply cannot shake their natural identities, for good or bad, writes Susy Campanale.

It’s remarkable that some clubs have an identity firmly entrenched in their very being, which cannot seem to change, no matter how many coaches, players and owners pass through. Inter are the Pazza (crazy) side that will lurch from a magnificent victory to a ludicrous self-inflicted defeat. Roma will always find a way of creating drama and chaos. Lazio forever think like the country cousins in the shadow of their city-dwelling rivals. Juventus grind out results, because winning is the only thing that matters. Atalanta run like the wind, or the Goddess in their club symbol.

Report: Lazio prepare to sell Milinkovic

Lazio are reportedly lowering the asking price for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and prepare to sell the Serbian after the current campaign.

President Claudio Lotito has previously asked €100m for the player, but Calciomercato.com claims he has decided to lower his expectations and let the star go for €70m this summer.

The outlet claims the Biancocelesti ace could therefore move abroad this summer, as the other Italian teams will struggle to meet the required amount to keep the attacking midfielder in Serie A.
