President Lotito to Inject €10m Into Lazio to Resolve Liquidity Ratio Issue

Lazio president Claudio Lotito will inject €10 million into the club to resolve the issue with the liquidity ratio.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti’s transfer market moves have been blocked for most of the summer due to the issues surrounding the liquidity ratio, which must be resolved before new signings can be registered.

One of the ways to resolve this would be to sell a player, like Argentinian forward Joaquin Correa, but nothing concrete has occurred and so other solutions must be explored.

Therefore, Lotito has decided to inject €10 million into Lazio, taking advantage of Article 90 of the Internal organisational rules of the FIGC, which relates to the coverage of financial shortcomings through an increase in equity with payments on account of future capital increase.
