Società Sportiva Lazio strongly condemns the shameful banner against the football player Elseid Hysaj. It’s not the first episode of this kind. We will never be on the side of those who deny the values of sport. Instead, we are unhesitatingly on the side of our athlete and all the other players involved in these weeks’ pre-season training camp.

We clearly distance ourselves from those who want to exploit this affair for political ends, which is damaging to the team, all Lazio fans and the Club.

We won’t be intimidated by those people who use violent and aggressive tones: there’s no place for them in our world, that is inspired by the healthy sporting values of fairness and competition, mutual respect and civil coexistence and it’s aimed at overcoming all social, cultural, economic and racial barriers.
