"Lazio will be a more competitive team than it is this season, we will strengthen the areas of the field where we feel we are weakest."

Lazio were the revelation of the season until crashing out the Europa League and slipping down the Serie A table, Lotito meanwhile maintains that Petkovic is safe:

"Petkovic has never been under question. Hernanes to be sold? At present none of our players are on the market, therefore they are not for sale. Lazio were the only team that made it to the quarter finals of the Europa League and were undeservedly eliminated. We are in the final of the Coppa Italia after putting out Juventus and we made it to second in  Serie A for the first half of the season. Hopefully the team can prove it's worth in the remaining matches."

Lotito was asked about Lazio's hopes of finishing the season on a high:

"I think the return of some players from injury will allow Lazio to return to normal, these absences have affected the team on a psychological level. Will the Coppa Italia save the season? The are so many teams which have not won anything. It is an important trophy that gives us the possibility to play in the Super Cup and enter the Europa League."
