Lazio striker Ciro Immobile intends to sue Torino president Urbano Cairo for his insults after the goalless draw against the Granata on Tuesday.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 31-year-old Italian striker wants to sue Cairo because of his comments, but first will ask for the FIGC’s authorization so he doesn’t violate the arbitration clause.

Cairo risks a fine and a ban for his actions and the Italian football federation’s Federal Prosecutor’s Office is ready to open an investigation. The Granata president was also seen being held back by his staff after a heated argument with Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito.

The Biancocelesti have already released a statement confirming that they will take whatever steps necessary to protect themselves and their players.

After the incident, Immobile replied on social media, which then prompted a further response from Cairo on his own Instagram page.

Immobile expressed his discontent at the situation, saying:

I am very sad because this is not the football I like. It’s made of meanness for no reason. You can’t have this anger inside, it’s absurd.
