Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the titanic clash against Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico, the President was asked about Lazio’s transfer dealings this January;

"In order to have a successful market some players must leave and also new ones need to be brought in only if it will improve the quality of the squad".

"Antonelli? His name has been linked with us for many years now, he is a good player but I believe the team is covered in this role. We have Mauri, Lulic and Vinicius, and also Pereirinha. Furthermore, Reja has not asked me for reinforcements in this area so there is no need"; stated Lotito.

Lotito was asked about the current players at Lazio; "We have a squad of 28 players, all of who have been requested. Floccari has been linked to a move away from Rome but we will not start negotiations unless we get another player for that role. We are always working for the future and need to remain competitive".

Lotito was then asked about the return of Reja: "We had the opportunity to recharge after a break of a year and a half. Football wears you out and playing and coaching in Rome is not easy. At Lazio, we always felt even when he was not working with us he could come back with a new breath of play and tactics and settle in quickly. Reja has found a complete and competitive team here and with an experienced coach like him, we will all be able to expresses ourselves better".
