Former Lazio midfielder Marco Parolo suggested that the team received too much praise ahead of their 3-0 loss to Bologna.
Speaking about the match with Italian broadcaster DAZN (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 36-year-old Italian pundit discussed the Biancocelesti’s painful 3-0 defeat to the Rossoblu at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
Too many compliments arrived during the week, as often happens in Rome, and a game seen as easy against Lokomotiv Moscow led the team to have a passive and soft attitude.
Something that happens cyclically. They will have to work on it if they want to finish in the top positions.
Now there is the international break and a chapter is closed that will be reopened in ten days.
Immobile was missing today and he is the most instinctive one, the one who expresses his thoughts on which the others then reflect.
He spoke about the highs and lows of his time with Lazio. The 36-year-old spent seven years with the Roman club, from 2014 until his retirement earlier this year.
It has happened to us many times over the years. It happened to us that we won at the San Siro and then lost in Ferrara against SPAL because we were a bit sluggish.
Rome is a place that gets very excited and if there isn’t a balance inside the club that allows enthusiasm to filter through, you run the risk of mistakes.
The only year in which we were consistent was the Covid year, but we were out of Europe in November and we played once a week. Playing every three days, with ups and downs is difficult.
Acerbi gives everything, he got nervous, he apologised and the referee made an unimpeachable decision.
Finally, Parolo discussed Lazio star Ciro Immobile and his importance to the squad.
He took over Lazio, he is a leader and without him the team does not know how to do things.
They’re so used to the movements when he is there.
