Lazio Women coach Carolina Morace reviewed the team’s work in their successful promotion push this season and looked ahead to next season.
Speaking in an interview with Italian media outlet Lazio Style Channel, the 57-year-old Italian coach commented on the team’s incredible work this campaign, where they finished top of Serie B Women.
The promotion ride is better now because during the season we didn’t savor it well. Now we realise, it’s been a wonderful year, I don’t think I’ve ever had a season like this in my career.
The turning point came with our daily work on the pitch. Now we have to bring the same alchemy to Serie A. It won’t be easy, but we have to honour Lazio’s history in the best possible way.
Teams in Serie A have important organisation, they make few mistakes. One mistake can cost you the result.
She touched on her history with the Biancocelesti and spoke highly of the future.
Everyone knows my past path in the Biancocelesti, where I had the luck to play with great players. Now I want to bring the team back to the top, where they deserve to be.
All the girls want to start again, a sign of a great squad.
Future? President Lotito and I are on the same wavelength, we both want what’s best for Lazio and that’s what we’re focused on, the rest is just talk.
Finally, Morace spoke about the appointment of former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri, brought in to replace Simone Inzaghi following his departure.
While Inzaghi is a great coach, Sarri is certainly a master who has perfected his teams. I refer especially to what he did at Napoli, with his maniacal defensive and offensive work.
I have studied him a lot in the past, now I am happy because I will have the opportunity to follow closely his training and working methods.
Morace’s Lazio Women squad finished top of Serie B after 26 games, four points ahead of runners-up Pomigliano. The team only lost one game all season, against 3rd place Ravenna back in January.
The turning point of the season came when prior coach Ashraf Seleman was dismissed at the start of February. Following on from Morace’s appointment, the team won nine out of the 14 remaining games of the season.
