Claudio Lotito has been criticised for his comments about the running of Serie A and Serie B.

Demetrio Albertini has branded Claudio Lotito "irritating" and says he should not be allowed to continue as an advisor to the Italian Football Association (FIGC).

Lazio president Lotito was recorded in a telephone conversation criticising Lega Serie A and Lega Serie B presidents and the potential promotion of Carpi -- currently leading Serie B -- to the top flight next season.

Lotito said that if clubs such as Carpi, Frosinone or Latina were promoted to Serie A, TV companies would refuse to...
