  07/03/2014: Klose for President?
email print  

President Claudio Lotito is considering making Miroslav Klose an ‘honorary president’ of Lazio, claims Il Messaggero. This would be in the similar vein to Dino Zoff at the club and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge at Bayern Munchen.

It is thought that this action would bring some positivity towards Lotito after fans have recently further expressed their clear dissatisfaction of the President. With Klose as an honorary president the intention would be to have him as the face of the Biancocelesti club worldwide as he is a very popular player.

The report claims that Lotito’s idea is to offer the striker a one year extension on his current contract and then once that finishes, a position as an honorary president or at least an executive of some sort will be provided. An offer is expected to be presented to the German next week as the President will look to tie Klose down as soon as possible to avoid further protests from Lazio fans – but that is highly unlikely to happen before the Atalanta clash this weekend at the Stadio Olimpico which has barely sold any tickets.

The plan for Klose seems to be set for 2015, if not earlier, as the striker’s playing future beyond this season is still under discussion with several clubs interested in his services next season. Worth noting is that other sources suggest that the German legend would prefer to play for another two seasons and then his dream is to go into coaching. 

The report stresses that even if Klose is made an honorary president, it does not guarantee that the revolts and protests against Lotito will cease.
