  22/09/2011: Lotito angered by the press

Claudio Lotito has unleashed his fury on the media for trying to force coach Edy Reja out of the club.

The President began, "The victory against Cesena was well deserved", before continuing, "The atmosphere in the team is good, however, you (the journalists) have always been trying to show it otherwise. You have done everything to force Reja out, even made up a list of coaches that might replace Reja. This situation is your fault".

Lotito suggested that the journalists lack ethics and the information, so they create fake stories, "Ten days ago, I was suggested that something like this would happen. The people who wrote all these insults to Reja need to have more ethics and information. I publish this article and those who can read will understand what I mean". Lotito then got back to the Zarate story, "He asked to leave and the Club accepted that. Everything you wrote after that is simply a speculation".

Lastly, Lotito attacked a reporter, named Marco, who was interviewing him, "The system is made from people like you, who create problems for us and make life difficult for Reja, who took us from a team, fighting for relegation, to a team, which missed out on the Champions League just because of the goal difference. Reja has a great relationship with the players and the Club".
