Lazio Director Downplays Buzz Regarding Internal Divide

Lazio exec Angelo Fabiani dismissed the chatter about an ongoing feud between Claudio Lotito and Maurizio Sarri. He spoke to Mediaset Infinity before the last-gasp victory over Celtic Glasgow (via Calciomercato).

“The notion that I had to serve as a peacekeeper between the two couldn’t be furthest from the truth. There’s nothing to add. Some of the concepts expressed by the coach were exploited and magnified. He talked in football lingo. Who’s in the industry knows what he meant. However, his words lent themselves to certain interpretations and created a case that was non-existent.”

“There’s no Sarri vs. Lotito but only a group that’s aware of its strength and wants to do well. The president cares a lot about the team and the people and sometimes voices his disappointment, which is a positive for us.”

Per Tuttomercatoweb, Sarri isn’t on the hot seat, and Lotito would entertain the idea of a coaching change only if things went really south. The plan is to make the call about the future only at the end of the season when the gaffer will enter the final year of his contract. In addition, the locker room is fully behind the boss.

The tactician rejoiced for the precious win on Wednesday to Sky.

“We don’t need much to be competitive. There’s not a big difference between winning and losing, and we can close that gap. We hope this result will give us courage and confidence.”
