Speaking to Sky Sport, Francesco Acerbi was questioned about Lazio’s defeat to Cluj. After going up 1-0, they lost 2-1, similar to the match against Spal in Matchday 3 of the Serie A.
“We took the lead and then lost 2-1 on a penalty that did not seem to be a penalty… We must look ahead, there’s nothing we can do about the result. We play well but we lack something minor. We need to keep our heads high – we will review our mistakes and improve. We have two days to go until the match against Parma. We must win and then go to San Siro (against Inter Milan) and also secure three points. Cluj is a good team, they were physical and asserted themsleves in the field. We lack that extra pinch that we all have to give. Now we need to keep our spirits up, fortunately we are at the beginning and we can improve. Our team is strong, we will work as we have always done. Are we less beautiful and more concrete? Yes. We must believe in ourselvesmore, going beyond fatigue in the field. The others keep running and we stop. Let us examine our conscience to look for answers.”
