Speaking to Sky after the game Lotito and Tare were very critical of the referee and the system as a whole.


Lotito started by praising his players and criticizing the referee: "I am proud of how the team played. The way we play should bring us results on the pitch, but when your opponent scores from dubious decisions like the penalty kick, and not to mention the disallowed goal of Brocchi, then one will end up losing. If this is the way things will go then we better stop playing and have someone write the final results." 

Lotito was clearly angry and he continued: "We believe in sportsmanship and this is in our DNA but apparently not everyone has it. I am not here to criticize and just be bitter about the loss, we don't want what happened to happen in the last remaining 7 games."

Lotito clearly believed that Lazio deserved to win: "We are playing an excellent season, we scored goals through gameplay while they scored from free kicks." 

Finally Lotito took a jibe at Cavani: "When Radu was disqualified we accepted it because we believe and teach our players to play a fair game. This is something I don't see at other clubs where players are taught to dive."


Director of Sports Igle Tare also took the time to criticize the referee and Cavani after the game: "Today we played a great game and we deserved the win, but some questionable events led to turn the tide and grant Napoli the three points. Cavani's penalty has influenced the result, now I know as a former striker that Cavani sought the penalty by simply throwing himself. This caused us to lose the game."

When asked about the future with Reja, Tare said: "We can only talk positively about Edy Reja, we are competing for advanced positions in the league table and we do hope to continue our work together in the future."
