Lazio president Claudio Lotito discussed the appointment of Carolina Morace as the new Lazio Women coach when speaking to gathered reporters at a press conference earlier today. His words were noted on the club’s official website.

Women’s football has always been considered in the background. Carlo Tavecchio and I, at the time President of the FIGC, thought it was necessary to bring attention to women’s football.

Once we were abroad and they asked us how our women’s football was doing, when we came back we set to work. I, in mine, bought Lazio Women. So, we forced the Serie A teams to set up their own women’s teams.

Today the results are important, because many famous teams confirm their position also in women’s football.

He touched on how he wants to provide the best facilities possible for the Lazio Women squad.

Our club wants to carry on the values on which it was founded and I have entrusted director Bianchessi with the task of carrying on the women’s movement.

We have set up the Fersini Stadium in the best possible way and everyone will be amazed.

We are providing Lazio Women with all the necessary facilities so that the players can express themselves in the best possible conditions. Results are also needed in the women’s world.

Finally, Lotito discussed why he decided to appoint Morace as the new head coach.

I met Carolina Morace many years ago. The former owner of Perugia Calcio introduced me to her. Bianchessi made me aware of some problems in the Lazio Women’s dressing room and suggested the name of Morace.

I immediately gave my consent because her profile represents a great boost for our club. Lazio, with Carolina, has the chance to grow in sporting merits, but also to attract the attention of the fans towards women’s football and towards Lazio Women.
