Lazio patron Claudio Lotito spoke in front of the SkySport cameras about the game against Fiorentina: “We must not exalt ourselves. The games are connected to certain circumstances and such happened in the Europa League game against Sporting. Today we showed character and maturity, despite the disadvantage the team put all their strength to recover. We are a team that can do well and the field will be our judge” – said the president. Among the good display of Klose and Hernanes Lotito said good words for Marchetti also: “He was the goalkeeper of the Italian national team, surely I did not discover anything. He was benched for a year and now needs to play more games as possible, but his value is certain. When Lazio will have a stadium? This is a question you have to ask those who issue permits. It took Juventus a long time to obtain the necessary permits, almost 12 years. Everyone must understand currently the company revenues come from television rights alone and we must be given the possibilities to realize the stadium project”.

Lotito continued on the season: “The team has potential to play on par with everyone. We haven’t been able to put the full team on the pitch due to injuries and suspensions. I hope it doesn’t happen again, we have great potential, but the results are related to the moments on the pitch. Today there were moments for us whom we seized and we found a deserved victory” – said Lotito for Mediaset Premium.

Speaking about the derby the president of Lazio once again backed up Edy Reja: “Reja does not deserve the treatment he is undergoing. He showed with his actions and his words he’s a great coach and a great professional who has the full trust of my self and the team. I ask the fans to be near him. He must feel he love of the people, because if he hearts threats and insults he suffers, because it is mortifying” – added Lotito.
