Gianni Lacché on Lazio’s Pre-Season Retreat: “There Are Some Problems”

By Apollo Heyes -

Gianni Lacché, president of Media Sport Event, highlighted the extra work needed for Lazio’s pre-season training camp in Auronzo di Cadore.

Media Sport Event are a company that specialize in organizing various sporting events and have been president Claudio Lotito’s preferred partner when setting up the pre-season training retreats each summer.

Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, Lacché underlined how there are some small issues regarding the plans for this summer’s retreat.

The idea is to hold the camp from the 11th to the 28th, but there are some problems that we are trying to solve. The hotel could have some difficulties in hosting Lazio in the last days, the 26th and 27th.

With Inzaghi we thought of doing it from the 10th to the 24th, so now we have to solve this problem, which is not a small one.

After five years of working with Inzaghi, the parties separated, another person has arrived who has other methods, other needs.

Lacché then moved on to discussing the visit of new coach Maurizio Sarri’s staff and the requests that were made.

A request was made for a synthetic pitch that will probably be used for warming up. They were thrilled by the courtesy and kindness of the place.

The football pitch is objectively very nice, when we arrive in July it will be in perfect condition.

The two trainers asked for the pitch to be a billiard table, very well maintained. They are very demanding. They come from Juventus and Chelsea, so the level is very high from this point of view.

Finally, Lacché commented on the Biancocelesti’s plans to carry out another training camp ahead of the start of next season.

Nothing is known. I imagine it will happen, but it’s just a feeling I have.

The location of Germany is unlikely, there are still too many restrictions because of the pandemic.

I think it’s more likely that it’ll happen in Italy.

Sarri and his staff are already hard at working planning the programme for the training camp, with the Italian coach set to divide the squad into two groups: defenders in one and midfielders and forwards in the other. This will allow both sets of players to learn their required tactics and movements quickly.
