Lazio president Claudio Lotito has slammed Paolo Negro.Lazio president Claudio Lotito has slammed Paolo Negro for telling the press he was excluded from the squad over his financial quarrels with the club.
Negro was left out of the side against Messina, and believes his ongoing squabble over unpaid wages and the failure to offer him a contract extension was to blame.
However, Lotito is angry with the Italy international for his claims - and dismissed his assertion.
"The player or his agent must show me the documentation that states he has been left out for this," said Lotito.
"The player was left out for technical reasons - Lazio can use different players.
"It's false that he didn't play for reasons bound up with his contract."
