Lazio live updates

Hernanes not for sale

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has warned potential suitors that it would take an "indecent" offer to prise Hernanes away from the club.

The Brazilian playmaker has been linked with several clubs - including Barclays Premier League sides Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as Italian outfit Inter Milan - in the winter transfer market.

Hernanes is not for sale. I have always said that if we received an indecent offer then we would evaluate it.

So far, we have not received any offers.

Roma sorry after Bastos scarf gaff

Roma have apologised for the offensive message that new signing Michel Bastos showed to the crowd during Tuesday's Coppa Italia game against Juventus.

The Brazilian winger was introduced to the Stadio Olimpico supporters and held up a scarf that carried the message 'Lazio merda' - translating to 'Lazio s***'.

Di Canio rejects idea of Lazio return

Paolo Di Canio would not consider succeeding Vladimir Petkovic as Lazio coach due to his fractious relationship with chairman Claudio Lotito.

Me, coaching Lazio? With Lotito there, never in my life. I don't like him but that's no secret.

It's a delicate time and there are lots of different elements that haven't been managed properly.

It's clear that the coach no longer has the power so maybe it's right to make a change. It's not Petkovic's fault but as a coach it's difficult to move a project forward when you know it's already over.
