Lazio president Claudio Lotito has been banned for two months as a result of the Covid-19 testing case.
As announced in an official statement by the FIGC yesterday, the Federal Court has handed the Biancocelesti a €50,000 fine, a five-month ban to doctors Fabio Rodia and Ivo Pulicini and a two-month ban to president Lotito.
All that remains to be seen now is if there will be yet another appeal to CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia to try and further lower the punishment.
The case dates back to last year, when Lazio trio Ciro Immobile, Thomas Strakosha and Lucas Leiva all returned inconsistent Covid-19 tests in a short period of time, despite featuring in training sessions and matchday squads.
The Biancocelesti have always affirmed that they acted in a correct manner and were also the victims in the situation.
