Posted on Apr 13 2014 | IANS

Rome, April 13 : Italian Serie A football club Lazio have dismissed speculations that Russian investors had offered a takeover worth 170 million euros.

The Rome-based outfit released a statement Saturday claiming that these speculations were "false and entirely without foundation", reports Xinhua.

According to media reports, a Russian conglomerate had offered 170 million euros to buy Lazio from president Claudio Lotito. The patron has been under fire from ultras for years, a battle that intensified this season with a boycott that is leaving the Curva Nord empty.

They even organised a march through the city streets with banners demanding new investors "Free Lazio".
