With Miroslav Klose ruled out for a long period with a knee injury, many expected Libor Kozak to see some more game time in his absence but the signing of Louis Saha has pushed him back down the pecking order and the Czech striker is now quoted as wanting out of Lazio.
It is reported that Dynamo Moskva made a 6 million bid for Kozak at the end of January and Kozak has slammed Lotito for refusing to open negotiations:
"I'm used to this, same story every year. The Russian offer was significant for me and for Lazio but Lotito has closed the door before he has even opened it."
Kozak has vowed to fight for his place at Lazio though despite his frustrations:
"There is the Europa League and the League, I want to play as many games as possible until the end of the season, but much will depend on my ability to change the mind of the coach."
