Lazio president Lotito accuses Roma of "verbal assault"

Lazio president Claudio Lotito insists he's not seeking a feud with AS Roma.

Lotito, though, admits he's received hostility from the Giallorossi.

"I have no problem with Roma, but I confirm my opinions on them," said Lotito.

"I never had any bitter or hostile attitude towards Roma. The two clubs have different visions. I always acted as the ant and not the grasshopper.

"I didn't criticise them. It all started during a phone-in when I said Totti's selfie was inopportune, something I still believe. It would've been better to do that after the game and not during.

"I also consider Juventus to be stronger than Roma. I am sorry that a technical evaluation should be followed by the verbal assault I was subjected to."
