Lazio President Claudio Lotito recalled the tense confrontation he held with Roma boss Jose Mourinho on the occasion of last year’s derby.

In an interview with Corriere dello Sport, Lotito spoke about the heated Derby della Capitale from last season in March which resulted in Lazio’s second consecutive win.

After the match, Lotito recalls, “I was walking through the tunnel in the Olimpico and there was a Roma player [Gianluca Mancini] who was completely naked in the corridor.”

“The match was Lazio-Roma, so we were at home. This player was railing against someone from Lazio, I stopped to understand what was happening, Mourinho came out and said to me: “What the f… are you looking at?” I replied: “Excuse me? Excuse me? I am President Lotito, show some respect! You are an employee and you are a guest here.”
