Ex-Lazio Defender Marino: “I Changed Channel After Bayern Munich’s Third Goal”

Former Lazio defender Raimondo Marino discussed the Biancocelesti’s painful 4-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League yesterday in an interview earlier today (via La Lazio Siamo Noi).

After Bayern’s third goal I changed channel, I didn’t want to watch anymore, I was suffering too much. Unfortunately, bad days happen, but losing like that hurts.

He touched on if the reigning European and World champions were too strong for the Roman club yesterday.

Yes, but then there was also a bit of bad luck. And if you make certain mistakes, you pay for them against champions. The Germans also have players in midfield who are able to move vertically and never lose the ball.

Only perhaps Lazzari was a little better. But as I said, I felt humiliated too, in the end they were only passing the ball around.

The 60-year-old Italian commented on if the Biancocelesti approached the game poorly.

No, you’re in the Champions League and that’s not possible. You should have tried to make up for that mistake with the back pass straight away, but they’re strong.

Sane and Coman are very good in one-on-one situations and very fast. In the return leg it will be impossible.

Finally, Marino spoke about the problems between Napoli and coach Gennaro Gattuso.

A similar situation happened to me when at Lazio they wanted to get rid of Fascetti. He created disturbances and I opposed his dismissal, they shouldn’t have allowed themselves.
