Speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster Lazio Style Channel (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 62-year-old Italian coach first spoke about the importance of having fans present during the training retreat.
For me it was important to see the fans around the team again, it was great. I spent the last few months as a coach without a crowd and it was very sad.
That’s because the work you do during the week is certainly aimed at winning games but also at entertaining the fans.
Seeing the fans here has brought back the enthusiasm. The locals see Lazio as their team.
Sarri then gave his thoughts about the training camp in Auronzo di Cadore as a whole.
The impact has been perfect, as has the training ground and I’m happy with what I’ve seen over the last few weeks.
The landscape of Auronzo di Cadore is beautiful, during training I looked up and I could see the Tre Cime di Lavaredo: it’s fortunate, we’re happy to have been able to enjoy such beauty.
Sarri worked hard with the squad over the last few works, ensuring that all the departments understand the tactics and movements required ahead of the new season.
The Lazio squad and staff will now have a few days of holiday in Rome before regrouping together in Formello on Saturday, when they’ll depart for another short training camp in Marienfeld, Germany.
