The words of Claudio Lotito

Lazio president Claudio Lotito from the headquarters of the biancocelesti’s retreat in Auronzo di Cadore spoke about the market: “Immobile? Ciro remains, mica I put him up for sale. Rest assured. Now Castellanos will come up on Tuesday, who has resolved bureaucracies, visas and everything else. We have 50 players who all want to come to us, with the dollar you buy everything, then with Lotito the result is guaranteed.”

“Another forward was needed and he has arrived. Milinkovic left and the replacement will come. It’s not like one goes to the supermarket, buy one and get three, so they’re all good. You have to buy the right players and with the right head. I have to make the team and I know what I have to do. Today the first priority is Milinkovic’s replacement.”

Berardi chapter: “I spoke with Sassuolo, he was never put up for sale. Except that they ask a frightening amount of money, but he is not for sale. Then we are talking about a guy who tore up his contract with Juventus.”

“I make a practical speech and say ‘what I have to do I know,'” Lotito continued, “The comparisons we had before the end of the championship on the needs that could improve the team. You have to give priorities and today these are them. We needed Immobile’s replacement and we bought him. We chose one of the best on the market. We hope he will do what he did outside. Milinkovic left certainly I didn’t send him away, in fact I tried to keep him until the end. They give him 20 million a year and he decided to leave and I said okay. Now the priority is to replace him. Everything else is in addition, it will be done. We are already working.”

Closing remark on Zielinski: “I choose the players. When you see the players you will talk. Did you know I was taking Castellanos? No. He came out because I brought him up otherwise you didn’t even know who he was. Sanabria or Castellanos? What are we talking about. Curls? What do I know, I eat urchins with spaghetti….”.
