Back in the Summer of 2014, Ciro Immobile had just completed a season that was going to kick-start his career. After an excellent 2012-13 with Pescara in Serie B, where he scored 28 league goals, he had struggled in Serie A with Genoa before that 2013-14 year with Torino. With the Granata, he had netted 22 league goals in 33 matches, and was touted as the next big thing in Italian football. Calcio mourned as he made a subsequent move ou...More
Lazio have recently been linked with a move for Santos midfielder Felipe Anderson, and despite delays over the move being completed due to third party issues, the deal is expected to be concluded before too long.
The player’s agent, Stefano Castagna, wrote on Twitter: “After this week I will be at FIFA’s side in a bid to abolish third-party investors. They are bandits. Football is something else entirely. The lad won’t give up, as he...More

Somehow still third, Lazio – 55 points – travels north to face Udinese (fifth, 52). Whilst...More
Long before Alessandro Nesta, Juan Sebastian Veron and that agonising yet ultimately memorable wait for news from Perugia in 2000, Lazio fans had another generation of heroes to worship. The class of 1973/74 led the capital club to their first Scudetto with players such as Giuseppe ‘Pino’ Wilson, Luciano Re Cecconi and Vincenzo D’Amico standouts. Yet one man shone above the rest – Giorgio Chinaglia. A great player and character, he died...More
There's no denying the task performed by Edy Reja on a weekly basis is nothing short of miraculous. Having taken over the role as Coach of Lazio from the hapless Davide Ballardini in 2010, the 65 year old rescued the team from near relegation.
