Lazio Women coach Carolina Morace was positive about her new adventure as the coach of the Biancocelesti.

Speaking with Italian radio broadcaster Radio Anch’io Sport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 57-year-old Italian first spoke about the project at Lazio.

Lotito wants to improve. Having invested in me is important, not just for one year but for a real project.

The president wants to create structures that support the men’s team, the women’s team and the youth sector.

She touched on the idea of seeing a female coach in the men’s Serie A.

When someone chooses one people will pay a little more attention. A woman must have a much stronger background than a man.

The Biancocelesti coach spoke about the issue of homophobia in football.

I didn’t just talk about the world of football. Our society is homophobic and racist. I think everyone can see it, especially those who have lived abroad. The same thing happens in politics and journalism.

A lot of people have to hide, it’s still not considered normal and this leads us to be a little bit behind in respecting diversity, compared to other countries.

We are a people used to judging, too much. The rest of the world is moving forward.

She spoke about if she’s been in contact with coach Simone Inzaghi.

Yes, just last week. On Wednesdays we train at Formello and I had time to talk to Simone.

Soon I’ll also see his training sessions, as he makes his teams play very well.

Finally, Morace spoke about the impact of Covid on sport.

All football, in general, is in crisis. Because of the pandemic, many people no longer follow the sport.

So many kids are playing tennis and padel nowadays, and this must be an alarm for our world.
