Claudio Lotito Becomes The Longest President In Lazio's History

Claudio Lotito has surpassed Fortunato Ballerini to become the longest-serving club president in Lazio history. He first served as president of the Italian capital club in July 2004.

Claudio Lotito became president of a club that was not immediately liked by all Lazio fans, they were split in two, with some appreciating his careful financial management and the deals they did well, while others thought he was too calculating to invest in and support the club.

As Corriere della Sera reported, Lotito became Lazio's longest-serving president to date, surpassing Fortunato Ballerini's record. Since taking Lazio on July 19, 2004, he has led the club for 6,482 days. Ballerini, on the other hand, was president of Aquile from 1904 to 1922, helping the club grow from the start and prepare for the future.

During his 18 years in charge, Lotito led the team to 6 trophies, 3 Coppa Italia (2009, 2017, 2019), and three Italian Super Cups (2009, 2017, 2019).  The achievement is the same as that inscribed by legendary president Sergio Cragnotti, although he also won the Scudetto, whether the current president can match this achievement or not is still to be seen.

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri's team is currently in seventh place in the Serie A standings after being held to a 1-1 draw by Torino, down one place from last week.  This season they are targeting to finish in the European competition zone.
