Lazio lawyer Gian Michele Gentile provided an update on the Biancocelesti’s case to get a default 3-0 win over Torino.

Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Radio Punto Nuovo (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, Gentile spoke about Lazio’s appeal to CONI Guarantee Board.

Until we decide whether or not there was an impediment, we must first assess whether Torino really couldn’t play. The 3-0 forfeit should have already been determined.

It will be a matter of about ten days, when there will be the hearing of the CONI Guarantee Board. We have one thing for sure, which is that the justification for Torino not being able to come to Rome is non-existent.

When there is a wrong decision by the Local Health Authority, can I as a sports judge say that it does not apply to me? This is the problem on which the relationship between sports justice and the stadium is based. When faced with an unjust measure there must be fair protection.

Gentile then briefly commented on the news of the Super League.

It brings down lower tiers of football even more. For me, football is above all entertainment. If there is a lot of money coming in, we need to improve the youth structures.
