ROME – A Scudetto final between Lazio and Juventus?
"I would accept it but I never asked myself the problem", explains Lazio president Claudio Lotito, who in an interview with La Repubblica instead says no to the playoffs:
"Today I am one point away from Juventus, and only for Juventus-Inter that … oh well, you have seen it.
But in the first leg against Juve I won 3-1 and also in the Super Cup I beat it 3-1.
And we still had to play the return.
For fairness, a team like Inter, which has 8 points less than us, or Atalanta, which has 14 points less, tell me if they should be involved. "
Lotito then denies the accusations of wanting to restart the season at all costs only for their own interests, related to the championship fight:
“If I don't play anymore I am already in the Champions League and I save four salary months.
I would have the convenience not to play, but I think of the system. Others don't ”.
And again: “ Starting off in any case penalizes us.
We had made a choice, believing we couldn't play it on three fronts we had sacrificed the Europa League, so we would have played once a week while the others played twice.
If we left we would all play twice a week, we would lose an advantage.
But I think in the interest of 20 clubs " , while" in people's heads there is the idea of blocking relegations even at the cost of finding the 22-team Serie A ".
On the start of training no earlier than May 18 indicated by Spadafora comments:
“And why is one date better than another? Do you have a study that we are not aware of?
The championship would start behind closed doors, there would be 70, 80, perhaps 90 people in addition to the teams: just do the checks for them too (…).
In Rome and in the center-south there are no problems, if other stadiums are not suitable a solution is found, after all the summer is going to retreat, isn't it? ". (Source: La Repubblica).
