The Lazio ultras have released a statement slamming the club’s management for their poor work in the January transfer window.
As reported by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla yesterday, the Biancocelesti ultras highlighted the lack of strategy and haphazard work in last month’s transfer window, in which only Jovane Cabral of Sporting was signed, and they confirmed their intention to protest.
Lazio’s January 2022 Transfer Market Review: Another Miserable Winter in Rome
Below is the Lazio ultras’ recent statement in full:
The protest will happen at the stadium, at the training ground, in person and not just writing on social media.
We had to sit and watch the usual ridiculous and improvised transfer window, born of a project that doesn’t exist.
Lazio is ours and doesn’t belong to those who run the club! Enough now, whoever really has this squad to heart will demonstrate it now.
The appointment is set for Thursday 3rd February at 1pm outside the Formello gates to scream all our disgust against this club that doesn’t care about its own fans!
Starting from the excessive ticket prices to the effective weakening of the squad in the January transfer window!
Never a step back… Hands off Lazio!
Sarri Furious With Lazio Following Disappointing January Transfer Window
The Lazio ultras are not the only ones who are infuriated by last month’s transfer window, with coach Maurizio Sarri reportedly giving president Claudio Lotito following the closure of the market: either fire Igli Tare or he’ll leave in the summer.
The 63-year-old Italian coach was promised reinforcements by the Biancocelesti coach, but as usual things were left until the last minute, with Jovane’s contract only being deposited in the dying minutes of the transfer window. The player is a winger anyway, and not a centre forward as requested by Sarri.
Le’t count how much money we lost with Muriqi, Fares, Durmissi, Jonny, Vavro, Berisha. After that add what we are loosing for not getting the best football out of Lukaku, Lazzari, Luis Alberto. This club has no vision, every transfer window it’s like flipping the coin.
With all the departures set to happen at the end of this season (as various players have their contracts expiring), Lazio is bound to have an eventful mercato. No goalkeepers, only one defensive midfielder and only one center-back as it stands – they won’t have a full squad unless they sign players.
The ballast was not sold, but only stuffed into leases, without obligations to buy.
Tare took only one winger. At the same time, we have practically no left back, there is no normal substitution in the center of defense (with all due respect to Patrick, but he is not a center back in a two-centre scheme) and Ciro Immobile, who has no one to replace! What kind of fight for the Champions League can we talk about?
