Lotito: ‘Salernitana Is a Closed Story, I Expected More Gratitude’

Claudio Lotito briefly reflected on his ownership of Salernitana and spoke highly about the work of Lazio this season.

The Lazio president owned the Campania outfit from 2011 to 2021, guiding the club from Serie D back up to the Italian topflight. Lotito was forced to sell Salernitana due to Lega Calcio rules forbidding him from owning two professional clubs in the same division, an issue that could also appear for Napoli boss Aurelio De Laurentiis, who also owns Bari.

Speaking to Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lotito first reflected on his time in charge of Salernitana.

Salernitana is a closed story, although I would have expected a lot more gratitude for everything I’ve done.

The Lazio president then gave his thoughts on the squad’s work this season and the impact of coach Maurizio Sarri.

Even without the injured Ciro, who we’ll get back stronger and more charged up, we’re a certainty in this league and we have all the right cards to stay at the top.

This team, built around Sarri’s brand, never ceases to amaze the fans with its spectacular and concrete play. 

We are not going to deprive ourselves of our most coveted players because this club now has big goals and is a point of arrival.

Lazio are a big family, also together with its fans that we hope to soon bring to a stadium of our own.

Lotito is currently exploring the possibility of moving Lazio’s home from the Stadio Olimpico to the Stadio Flaminio, but this is a slow process filled with bureaucracy.

Intercity rivals Roma are also looking to leave the Stadio Olimpico, keen to develop their own stadium elsewhere.
