Lotito Needles Alberto and Kamada and Confirms Tudor

Lazio president Claudio Lotito is determined not to have his arm twisted in the transfer market, even in thorny cases like the ones involving Luis Alberto and Daichi Kamada. He slammed the Spanish maestro in an interview with Il Messaggero (via Sky).

“He’s doing everything on his own. He has four more years on his contract. If he wants to leave, he must bring the money we ask for. Surely, we won’t let him go gratis like he said publicly. A listed company might even sue for damages for something like this.”

Alberto has been linked especially to Qatari club Al-Duhail, but their offer has stopped short of the Biancocelesti’s request.

Lotito suggested that Lazio were unwilling to give Kamada the pay rise he might want, hinting that he’d prefer the midfielder to exercise his automatic option to extend his deal.

“He said he wanted to stay, and now he has to prove to be serious.”

Finally, the president confirmed Igor Tudor on the Lazio bench following a seventh-place finish.

“I hadn’t talked with him until Monday. He’s tied to us until June 2025, so there’s no urgency to prolong his contract. He didn’t tell me he wanted to leave or had doubts about continuing our relationship.”

Lotito touted the team’s success from an economic standpoint.

“You will realize how healthy Lazio are on May 31st. We’ll be in the black for €35M in this balance sheet session, with positive net assets.”
