Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri wants Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to shine against Cagliari today.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta Sportiva (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 62-year-old Italian coach was disappointed in the midfield duo’s performances in the back-to-back losses against AC Milan and Galatasaray recently.

Sarri wants to see an important response from the pair, having recently defended them when speaking with the media, and so they’ll be expected to shine in this evening’s match against Cagliari.
