Claudio Lotito, Lazio president, has given an interview to the Corriere dello Sport about several issues, including Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and the situation revolving around the Serbian midfielder.
“Milinkovic-Savic? We have created a glass house and understood that people cannot be forced to play their role in an environment where they feel restricted. This is not the case with Sergej. He showed great affection, responsibility and seriousness. It will depend on the events and not on the club. Last year I managed to reject the assaults, this year we could propose a matter of respect if the player were to propose a different solution.
“Lazio will never be weakened, but always strengthened, there is no doubt about this: it is our understanding.
“All the promoted actions have as their objective the pride of the Lazio brand. We have moved from the phase in which no one believed in that of our objectives, today the team is permanently present in European competitions. My players have to summarize three parameters: technical potential, morality, functional economic compatibility.”
