Lazio have decided to lodge two separate appeals against the punishments stemming from the Covid-19 tests case.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti’s strategy will be to launch two separate appeals against the punishments, which saw Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito and club doctors Ivo Pulcini and Fabio Rodia all banned for 12 months.

The two appeals will allow the club to appeal against Lotito’s punishment by the end of June.

The Biancocelesti want to overturn the sentences and still believe they committed no wrongdoing in the case.

On Tuesday the appeal for the doctors was filed, followed by Lotito’s appeal; the Biancocelesti president risks being banned from holding any federal office position for the next 10 years.

The situation all stems from back in October and November last year, when certain players like Ciro Immobile had both positive and negative Covid-19 tests in a short period of time, with the 31-year-old Italian taking to the pitch on one occasion.
