The ugly public spat between Lazio patron Claudio Lotito and Roma President James Pallotta took another twist.

The pair have exchanged several barbed comments over the last few days accusing each other of poor financing and referencing a betting scandal.

It seemed to reach a nadir when Roma President Pallotta released a statement this evening calling Lotito “foolish and ignorant.

The ugly public spat between Lazio patron Claudio Lotito and Roma President James Pallotta took another twist.

The pair have exchanged several barbed comments over the last few days accusing each other of poor financing and referencing a betting scandal.

It seemed to reach a nadir when Roma President Pallotta released a statement this evening calling Lotito “foolish and ignorant.

“Next time I come to Rome I will attempt to educate him on our strong and profitable financial position as I would speak to a young child (speaking slowly with as many one syllable words as possible). If he still can’t figure it out, I give it up.”

Lotito replied after an hour with another formal statement released by Lazio.

“Apart from the disrespectful terms used towards a colleague, President Pallotta ought to read back over his club’s balance sheet, which was approved only a few months ago, and remember that in just 2014 he lost over €38m, presenting an overall net negative of €81m.

“We hope that from July 1 2015 he will be able to respect the Italian Financial Fair Play rules, which Lazio have been respecting for over 10 years.”

The Rome Derby ended 2-2 on Sunday afternoon, but drags on with words.
