Italy defeated Albania 2-0 despite the disturbances from the fans of the visitors.
Albanian fans repeatedly disturbed the game, throwing flares and smoke bombs onto the pitch during the clash.
The coach of the visiting side Gianni de Biasi said he was “upset” with the fireworks during the games. He added that he “never thought” he would see such from the fans.
The fans started with the flares when the referee SlavkoVincic awarded a penalty in favour of the hosts. As Daniele de Rossi was about to take the kick, the flares came on. After the break, the game had to be paused for eight minutes and the players asked to leave the pitch.
The fans were threatened with warning that their team could get sanctioned if the disturbances continued. The warnings did little to stop the fans as the flares use continued.
One of the stewards was scared when fans threw flares onto him. He was assessed and declared fine but the skipper of the Albanian team AnsiAgolli had to appeal to the fans before play could resume. Read more »

AC Milan is preparing to sign Keita Balde Diao, Lazio talented midfielder with Keita also having expressed his intention to leave the club.
As the January transfer window opens next year, AC Milan’s coach, Vincenzo Montella, hopes to make some new additions to his squad, especially in the positions of a centre midfielder and a winger.
He has also expressed readiness to part with Carlos Bacca, in order to make sure the signing of Keita is successful.
There is a sort of strained relationship with Keita and Lazio, and during the club’s Christmas dinner recently, he had walked out at the time president Claude Lotito was getting ready to deliver his speech.
For Keita who would feature in January’s African Cup of Nations, he has been hoping for a significant increase in his pay, but it seems like Lazio will not be willing to offer him anything more than €1.5 million a season. Read more »

Lazio endured a difficult 2015-16 campaign and this resulted in manager Simone Inzaghi being brought in to improve the club’s fortunes in April.
The new boss has certainly improved the results at the capital outfit, who are on the verge of entering into the top four. However, they could have certainly made a tilt for the top three places had it not been for the four dropped points against Bologna and Torino. Manager Inzaghi has claimed that he is extremely disappointed with those dropped points. On the positive side, the club did manage to get a late equaliser against Bologna.
However, Torino managed to hit back Lazio with a taste of their own medicine as Ljajić scored with a similar late goal in the 2-2 draw. Inzaghi claimed that Lazio deserved a win against Torino. The club will have an opportunity to redeem themselves and claim a first win in two league matches when they face Cagliari in the upcoming game. The season is fast turning out into a great campaign, as the club are only six points away from table leaders Juventus. The possibility of winning the title may have evaporated even at this early stage, but even a top two finish looks likely since Roma are only four points ahead. Read more »

Lazio managed to open the 2016-17 season in the best possible way after getting a victory against Atalanta.
There was a lot of pressure on the team to start the season well after having just experienced one of the poor campaigns in recent memory. Just when it seemed that the team was on the verge of regularly qualifying for the Champions League, they slipped back into the lower levels of the Italian Serie A table. Hopes of reviving the team has been placed upon Inzaghi and the manager did not disappoint after grabbing this rollercoaster victory
A 4-3 win on opening day does not give out a lot of positive vibes about the defence, but it was important three points for the team to begin with. It also gives them a lot of confidence going into the next game against champions Juventus. Inzaghi would have preferred to wait for a game against the champions, but this would be a great time to play against Massimiliano Allegri’s team since they are just recovering from the loss of midfielder Paul Pogba to Manchester United. Inzaghi claimed that his team was made to suffer in the win against Atalanta since the opposition were extremely good as well. Immobile was the start of the show with a first-half brace.

There are media reports that Italian club Lazio might make a bid for Chelsea defender Baba Rahman.
The latter joined the London club last season but has failed to make an impact on the team. Lazio, who are looking to strengthen their defence ahead of the new season, are prepared to offer up to £13million in order to sign the players.
Chelsea signed Baba Rahman from German club Augsburg last summer, but the player has failed to establish himself in the team. He has managed only 23 appearances for the Blues so far, and most of those have been as a substitute. Although the £13million will come short of the £21million Chelsea paid for him last summer, they will be delighted to recoup at least part of the money on a player that has failed to adapt to the Premier League.
Indeed, Baba Rahman had found it hard to dislodge Cesar Azpilicueta from the first-team and even when the latter was absent, the Chelsea manager has chosen Kenedy ahead of him. The player will also feel that he is damaging his career by remaining in England, and he will be better off trying his luck somewhere else.

Felipe Anderson’s agent has denied that the Lazio player will be leaving the club in the summer.
There have been rumors that Felipe Anderson will be leaving the Italian club for Manchester United after the club has failed to qualify for the Europa League.
The Lazio director stated some time ago that he has turned down a €50m offer for the forward but did not tell from which club it was. There are media reports that Manchester United might be interested in boosting their attacking options especially now with Rooney playing in a central role in midfield. Indeed, this season Manchester United has been relying on young players such as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford for goals. In Felipe Anderson, they will have a trusted and proven scorer that will allow them to win important games.
So far this season, the Lazio player has made 45 appearances for the team and managed to score 9 goals. For a player that is still 23, he still has time to improve and to become a world-class striker. Read more »

Italian side, Lazio have appointed a new coach to replace Stefano Pioli. Pioli is being replaced by Simone Inzaghi following a derby loss to Roma. The loss was colossal for Lazio, losing by four goals to one. The replacement was announced on Sunday, after the loss to their city rival. The team is now in eight position and may not make Europe next season.
Stefano Pioli helped Lazio to a third place finish in the last campaign but lost a chance to engage in the UEFA champions league due to a loss to Bayern Leverkusen in the playoffs.
The new coach, Inzaghi, is coming to the seria A for the first time even though he had been with the club’s youth squad. The trend just continues as Lazio is the eighth in the league to change a coach this same season.
The 39-year-old Simone Inzaghi, who is a former Lazio player, is the younger brother of legendary striker, Filippo Inzaghi. Filippo Inzaghi played for juventus and AC Milan. He even coached AC Milan last season. Filippo Inzaghi had taken over the reins from Clarence Seedorf. Since he couldn’t turn around the woes of the once revered club, he was also fired and replaced with Sinisa Mihajlovic. The current coach has also come under fire for poor performance this season and may be replaced during the summer. Read more »

Lazio’s Felipe Anderson is attracting the interest of top European clubs but the Italian club is attempting to keep hold of the 22 year old midfielder for as long as possible. Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are the latest clubs that have shown interest in securing the services of the Brazilian player but it’s unlikely that Anderson will be leaving Lazio unless a very tempting offer is launched.
Igli Tare is the technical area coordinator of Lazio and he revealed that Manchester United made an offer in the region of €50 million as the Premier League club attempted to sign the Brazilian midfielder but Lazio rejected this offer as the offer wasn’t good enough.
“We turned down a €50m offer from Manchester United on Aug. 27 and nothing has changed since then, because if he finds consistency, then he’s worth much more. We also resisted bigger offers than that, but we have targets to achieve.” Lazio’s technical coordinator, Igli Tare said.
The Italian club is indeed willing to offload Felipe Anderson as well as a few other players who have attracted the interest of other European clubs but only if the price is right. Igli Tare revealed that the board of directors of the club and the rest of the head chiefs of the club will meet up and evaluate every offer that has been made and will be made throughout the winter transfer window before reaching a decision.

The contract of Stefano Mauri reaches it’s end at the end of the current month in June and at the age of 35, he is reaching the last stages of his career where it’s time to start considering what to do before hanging up his boots and a move to the MLS is beginning to tempt the Italian midfielder.
Even though Mauri’s contract with Lazio is about to end, he remains certain that he will have his contract extended with the Italian club but the player is still trying to keep his options open.
Lazio’s Stefano Mauri said: “My contract is ending, but I really don’t think there will be any problems extending it. However, if an interesting offer were to come from the MLS, then I would have to think about it, that’s for sure.”
While Stefano Mauri is considering what to do if either to continue his stay in Lazio or making a move to the MLS, his German teammate MiroslavKlose is 100% certain about what he wants to do as he committed his future to Lazio and will be performing with the Italian club for at least another season.
