(see related story) Rome, November 22 - Lazio Chairman Claudio Lotito on Thursday denied suggestions his side's supporters were involved in a brutal attack on a group of Tottenham Hotspur fans overnight. "Lazio fans have nothing to do with what happened last night," Lotito said. The chairman said he would release an official statement later on Thursday, adding that there would be "surprises about the real culprits" and claiming three non-Italians were among the attackers. Thursday's Europa League match against Spurs was meant to be a celebration as Lotito has invited former England midfielder Paul Gascoigne to attend. 'Gazza', who has been engaged in a long battle against alcoholism, played for both clubs and is still highly popular among Lazio fans.
