Sergio Cragnotti has offered his help to beleaguered Lazio president Claudio Lotito.
"During my stay in Madrid it was very exciting and moving to see so much affection from the Lazio fans. Many people asked me to come back," Cragnotti told Nuova Spazio Radio. "Would I return? My affection for this club shall never wane. I have some family issues to sort out right now, but we will see what the future holds.
"The problem is that the future of Lazio depends on President Lotito and his choices. The others can only observe his work and eventually offer some important projects."
It would be a shock comeback for Cragnotti, whose reign saw the Biancocelesti win the Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Cup Winners' Cup, but also a total financial collapse in 2002 that forced him to sell up to Lotito.
"I am at Lotito's disposal, if he decides to begin a winning project," added Cragnotti.
"I don't know if Lotito will accept my proposal of collaboration, seeing as he likes to do everything by himself. For now let us put our faith in this President.
"My only criticism right now is that, having restructured the club, he is not planning for that step up in quality. The Lazio fans deserve to know their side's real prospects."
