Lotito hits back at Baldissoni “betting” comments

Lazio president Claudio Lotito met with jouralists to respond to Roma general manager Mauro Baldissoni, who claimed that “Lazio are the ones used to betting” when referring to the Lazio president’s bet that Roma won’t win the Scudetto:

“Baldissoni’s comments? I don’t want controversy, however, I want to say to Dr. Baldissoni – lawyer Baldissoni, not to waste time afterwards regarding these things, and that they need to devote more time to keeping the (finanial) accounts of their club. If he wants to, he can come to Formello so we can show him the bets won for the cleanliness and efficiency of Lazio.”

“Totti? What I ask of people who have a high place in the media is to have a sense of responsibility for their behavior at the appropriate time. I would have said the same things to a Lazio player, but my players would never have done that because they’re polite and have respect for values.”
