Lazio president Claudio Lotito has rubbished claims of a punch up with Napoli supremo Aurelio de Laurentiis during a Lega Calcio meeting earlier this week.

It was reported that Lotito drew up a plan to split television rights with more going to Lazio than Napoli.

This sparked an exchange of words and the alleged punch thrown by De Laurentiis, until Milan’s Adriano Galliani and Pietro Lo Monaco of Catania intervened to pull them apart.

“I prefer not to discuss situations that are clearly ridiculous,” Lotito told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Let’s talk about football, not these stupid stories. The table tells us Napoli-Lazio will be an important game on Sunday.”
