The list of jersey numbers for Lazio's players for the 2021/22 season has been confirmed after the end of the summer window on August 31, 2021.  New midfielder Toma Basic chose to wear a number that is considered controversial.

Lazio has announced the jersey number that its players will wear in the 2021/22 season, after the arrival of new players and the departure of several players in recent months, some numbers are unused and new players have made their choice, the newest player, Mattia Zaccagni chose the number  20.

While the new midfielder, Toma Basic chose the number 88 which has a certain connotation because it was once used for the abbreviation of the Nazi greeting 'Heil Hitler' (the letter H is the eighth letter in the alphabet).

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was strongly protested when he decided to wear the number 88 while still playing Parma which caused inconvenience to the Jewish community in Italy.  While in the case of Basic, there is no sign that the player knew the meaning of the connotations when he chose the number, but it became the center of media attention especially when he made his debut.
