Lotito: “Astori wasn’t a priority”

Lazio president Claudio Lotito spoke today to Il Fatto Quotidiano after his club lost out on Davide Astori to the Giallorossi.

“Losing on the transfer market? Roma remembers the Italian Cup. I never said that I would buy Astori. I have six goals for the role. Some are given priority, but Astori was not priority. Tare, unfortunately, is not fluent in Italian, it’s not true that he wants to resign, as they have written.”
