This is an article featured in Corriere dello Sport today. I though of sharing Lotito`s thoughts about the transfer campaign and plans for January.
«The lack of Santa Cruz`s arrival is not a disappointment. We decided to take some time and wait for the January mercato campaign in order asses if it is right to make another acquisition, given that we already have Zarate, Floccari, Rocchi and Foggia in that role. Also, Hernanes could likewise play in the offensive department, without forgetting young Kozak. For that matter, we`ll talk again in January».
Lazio President Claudio Lotito admits that Santa Cruz`s arrival to the Capital was only because of the choice of the biancoceleste team: «We had a transfer campaign in agreement with Reja – said Lotito in an interview to “Dimensione Suono Roma” – in defense, we deemed not to intervene, but are programming an potential signing in defense in January, (Lugano in pole-position)».
NEW PLAYERS IN JANUARY – Lazio boss confirms that one of the players who could strengthen Lazio in January is Uruguay captain Lugano, but yet acknowledges that the current roster at Reja`s disposition is very competitive «Now it remains up to the team and the coach to bring the results in the field. The potential is there, the roster is competitive. Champions, Never say Neveri». Mauro Zarate is the future of Lazio for whom president Lotito rejected an offer from Tottenham in the amount of 20 milion euros: «I don`t take into consideration bids for Zarate – concluded Lotito – the Argentinian is off the market and a point of reference for the club».
