Lazio president Lotito makes plea to angry fans
Lazio president Claudio Lotito hopes for a fresh start with fans next season.
Lotito is under continued scrutiny for his poor relationship with the club's supporters, who are critical of his work in recent years and are keen for him to sell.
"I hope that we can start again from scratch, this will be our will: to reset. We will maintain what has been made good, erase the mistakes and share together a new enthusiasm.
"Results are obtained with sacrifice and work, not only with the economic evaluations - that is a system that no longer holds.
"There are people that you know will sell well in the media, others who are used to working in silence, trying to carry on the results, unfortunately without the consent of the media.
"Before you criticise people, you must put them to the test - the technical point of view cannot be assessed, it is facts that will show whether what you say is true or not.
"We have chosen Pioli because he is a choice we are convinced of, wanted and is tied to these values - he will stand to show what he is worth on the field.
"The approach is the right now. He has understood the importance of the club, he has to change people's minds."
