Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri was given a red card following the final whistle in yesterday’s 2-0 loss to AC Milan.

As highlighted by officiating expert Errori Arbitrali on Twitter earlier today, the 62-year-old Italian coach was sent off following an argument with 22-year-old Rossoneri winger Alexis Saelemaekers after the final whistle had blown.

Saelemaekers was reportedly exaggerating in his celebration, which riled up the former Napoli and Chelsea coach, who went over to confront the player in an aggressive manner, asking for respect.

Referee Daniele Chiffi was not impressed with Sarri’s behaviour and gave him a red card as a result.

The 62-year-old Sarri was incredibly frustrated with Lazio’s poor performance against AC Milan last night, with the team failing to transmit the tactics and ideas taught to them last week by the coach.

The Biancocelesti will have to bounce back quickly ahead of Thursday’s UEFA Europa League clash against Turkish side Galatasaray.
