Lazio president Lotito on 15 years in charge: We set an example

Lazio president Claudio Lotito insists they're determined to build a "competitive" squad.

Lotito has celebrated 15 years of his presidency this week and spoke to Lazio Style Channel about the club's future.

He said, “I think the club has made real efforts to form a competitive squad for next year. It's going to be an important season and I hope the players realise their own strength both on the national and international stage.

“The fact that we are second only to Juventus in Italy for the number of trophies won in recent years shows we have created a sense of stability. The difference now is that Lazio fans feel secure going into the future and our growth from here on cannot help but be exponential.

“We're very proud to have taken over 15 years ago with Lazio on the verge of bankruptcy with over €500m in debt and over time proving the skeptics wrong, as we built the foundations on concrete and not sand. Look at how many clubs are now struggling or have been wiped out. We set the example for many in Italy."
