Cristiano Ronaldo? Great But Not For Us - Lotito

The Aquilotti are ready to begin flying again this term after last season’s shambles. A number of new players have come into the side including Mauro Zarate as the club attempts to challenge for silverware.

However, the chief insists his side must not let all the excitement get to their heads. Lotito mentioned Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, and although he would like to have a player like him at the club, he insists it’s impossible.

“I think we have to keep our feet on the ground rather than try and fly,” Lotito told ANSA.

“In this world you cannot have dreams beyond reality or you can end up paying a high price.

“It’s true that there are some great players around the world that excite the imagination, like Cristiano Ronaldo for example.

“You look at the player, young and established but then you know players like him cannot be afforded by a club like Lazio who cannot spend €80m on a single player.

“We have made an important acquisition and I think Mauro Zarate will be the revelation of the season.”

Ronaldo was heavily linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid all summer, but Los Merengues failed to land him. Lazio could only watch from distance as the days of Sergio Cragnotti’s mega spending era are long gone.
