The Lazio president spoke on Radio 1 after the match: “I didn’t discuss with Josè, it’s a matter of roles. Roma were guests”
“I celebrated the derby without too much emphasis because games are won and lost, what matters is the character you put on the pitch, the attitude of the team was the great satisfaction”. The president of Lazio, Claudio Lotito, says it on Radio 1’s radio show “A sheep’s day”. “Added to this is a great cheer and a great passion from the fans. A glass of wine to celebrate? I’m on a diet, I’ve gained too much weight. I’ve increased a lot and I’m trying to decrease mainly for health reasons. Football is not only sporting or economic result. When I entered this system, I said that football was didactic and moralizing”.
The elite with Mourinho
“I am for respect. I didn’t utter a word, I saw a tumult between one of my players and one from Roma – says the Biancoceleste president -. One thing didn’t go down well for me, which is that the Roma player was completely naked in the corridor. I stopped and Mourinho yelled at me ‘What are you looking at?’, I thought he hadn’t understood that I was the president of Lazio and I specified it to him, he increased the dose”. He also rejects the idea of having told the Giallorossi coach to leave: “I never told him he couldn’t stay there, just who I was. We didn’t give any hands to Mourinho because I didn’t argue with anyone, it’s a problem of roles that must be respected. The match was Lazio-Roma, Roma were hosted. It’s as if a guest arrives at your home and behaves in a certain way”. Taking Mourinho to Lazio? “Never say never, but I don’t think the characters are suitable”.
