A qualified source from the FIGC has responded to Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s letter of warning.

Speaking to Italian news outlet ANSA earlier today, the unnamed source from the Italian football federation has highlighted that the Biancocelesti president’s warning has no basis and that it is incredibly unlikely that he will be reinstated as a Federal Councillor.

Enough misrepresentations, Lotito’s guilt has been established. 

Astonishment in learning how in the reconstructions of President Lotito and his lawyers, there is erroneous talk of a referral, artfully eluding point 4 of the ruling of the Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport, where it is clearly written that having fielded a positive player on the pitch and one on the bench represents a very serious negligence and responsibility. 

His guilt has become final, there are no rules made to measure, the rules apply to everyone and must be respected, there is no personalism, on the contrary it is Lotito himself personalising to divert attention from his responsibilities.

Lazio’s Lotito Asks for Immediate Reinstatement to FIGC Federal Council

Lazio president Lotito sent a letter of warning to FIGC president Gabriele Gravina, Lega Serie A president Paolo Dal Pino and all the federal bodies, requesting immediate reinstatement to the Federal Council.

Lotito claims that the CONI Collegio di Garanzia’s decision to accept elements of his appeal means that he should be reinstated to his post, which he was suspended from as a result of the inconsistent Covid-19 testing trial case.

The Biancocelesti president is not likely to back down from this battle and so further legal action is now a genuine possibility, and so developments are expected over the coming days.
