Lazio Women coach Carolina Morace’s work to guide the Biancocelesti back to Serie A is nothing short of incredible.
As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi recently, the 57-year-old Italian coach arrived in the middle of the season and managed to immediately make a difference, significantly bringing up the level of the squad and making them one of the top teams in Serie B Women.
Former coach Achraf Seleman was dismissed by president Claudio Lotito after the first 14 games of this season; In that period, Lazio won six games, drew seven times and lost once, averaging 1.8 points per game. They scored a lot, 36 times, but also conceded 15 times, showing the raw potential of the squad.
The attitude of the team, in particular, is why Lotito decided to make the decision to dismiss Seleman and bring in Morace, a person who knows women’s football well and was capable of instilling a winning mentality in the squad.
Morace’s success is obvious when looking at the numbers. In her 12 games this season, the Italian coach has guided the Roman club to eight wins, four draws and zero losses, with the team scoring 26 goals and conceding just six, keeping seven clean sheets. Her average points per game is 2.3.
One of the most important things that Morace taught the squad was how to be a united group. The Biancocelesti under the Italian coach have refused to give up in games and her players have both courage and confidence in themselves and their teammates.
With promotion to Serie A secured, Morace and president Claudio Lotito will work together to define the plans for the future and continue the incredible work being carried out.
