Power, corruption and Sven – Cragnotti’s Lazio
Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti are back to discuss a man whose motto was ‘spend more than you earn.’
Sergio Cragnotti was seen as a man from the future, with very few knowing where he got his money from. But as president of Lazio, he ploughed record amounts of cash towards the pursuit of silverware. And he forced Roma fans to boycott milk.
Cragnotti’s reign began in jail and ended…in jail
He put together one of the most expensively assembled squads in history and then stole Sven-Goran Eriksson from under Blackburn’s noses and charged him with securing the title.
We also analyse the latest action in Serie A, where Inter are the form team with six wins in a row. But Luciano Spalletti is still miserable.
