Salernitana sporting director Angelo Mariano Fabiani suggested that the club ownership regulations should be reviewed ahead of Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s sale of the newly-promoted side.
Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 59-year-old Italian discussed the upcoming sale of the club and their promotion to Serie A.
Lotito already has a team in Serie A and as a matter of image and opportunity he has to take a step back after doing so much for Salernitana. I don’t agree that a brother or brother-in-law can’t take over ownership. Perhaps it’s an obsolete rule that should be reviewed…
Today, Salernitana have reached Serie A and are firmly established in the football that matters. However, the Serie B league is beautiful and should not be underestimated.
The Biancocelesti president has until the 25th of June to sell the newly-promoted Campania side, having been given a two-week extension to the original 30-day mandate by the Italian football federation yesterday.
Lotito has owned Salernitana alongside his brother-in-law Marco Mezzaroma since 2011, bringing the club back from bankruptcy and guiding them to the Italian topflight.
Salernitana unexpectedly finished second in this Serie B season, finishing four points behind league winners Empoli and five points ahead of Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza, who lost 3-0 to Cittadella yesterday in the semi-finals of the playoff.
