  31/05/2013: Lotito on the Coppa Italia and the stadium
email print  
 
"The success of the Coppa Italia is the culmination of a journey and a platform to build on. It shows Lazio are the number 1 team of Rome, not only historically but from a sporting point of view now."

"We reached our goal. Finishing 7th in the league didn't mean anything in the end as Fiorentina who came 4th have to go through the playoffs for the Europa League while we enter directly. We got the result we wanted. Next year we'll equip ourselves better."

Lotito called for a closing of the gap in terms of earnings between the big clubs in Italy and the rest:

"There must be logic applied to allow the teams to be competitive. Lazio are at a disadvantage as we earn 90 million in revenue a year compared to the 250 million of the top three. They themselves are at a disadvantage compared to Real Madrid who earn 550 million. We need to try and bridge this gap. If Lazio had the chance to go from 90 to 160 million in revenue things would be different."

Lotito was asked about the new stadium he is trying to build for Lazio:

"It depends on the law. It is critical as it allows a football team to create a project. If the law allowed, I would build it tomorrow although it would take 3 years to complete the stadium."
