Lazio Women coach Carolina Morace looked back at the Biancocelesti’s successful Serie B Women campaign and their promotion to Serie A.
Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 57-year-old Italian touched on the team’s enjoyable season.
It’s a pity we ended the season as we were beating everyone, but until mid-June we will train to the maximum.
We’re the team that has won the most games home and away, it was great to win the league like that. Last year we missed out on promotion for non-football reasons, but this year we’ve had a lot of fun.
She touched on the team’s celebrations and the support of Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito.
Apart from everything else it was great to enjoy every moment. President Lotito’s words were touching, he even moved us several times and told us he was in love with this team for its qualities and virtues.
We managed to transmit the tenacity, the desire to win and the ambition that Lotito transmitted to us.
Finally, Morace spoke highly of her players and looked ahead to the next season.
The girls have accepted to work and come here and train until the evening, making themselves 100% available.
The players have felt respected, they have improved and they have been grateful for all the work we have done together.
We will have to sit down with the president now and understand what the ambitions and plans are.
Lazio Women finished the 2020/21 Serie B Women season in 1st place, having won 14 of their 26 matches, drawing 11 and losing only once. The Biancocelesti’s loss came to Ravenna back in January, a 1-0 defeat.
The Biancocelesti’s promotion to Serie A Women means that they are now competing against the best female teams in Italy, where teams like Juventus, AC Milan and Sassuolo dominate.
Morace took over from Ashraf Seleman at the start of February this year and had an instant impact, quickly guiding the team to winning ways.
