Lega Serie A president Paolo Dal Pino was not impressed with the complaints of Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri.
Speaking on the sidelines of a presentation at the International Broadcast Centre of Lega Serie A (via LazioNews24) earlier today, Dal Pino commented on Sarri’s frustrations with the early scheduling of the Biancocelesti’s match against Bologna on Sunday.
I read that Sarri talks about war with the League. But I don’t think he said that in the Premier League when he had to play matches more than once with less than 60 hours between them.
Here they had 61 hours. We’re used to pressure, it’s normal. We don’t like rudeness. The league is everyone’s home.
And the league runs the league and fortunately we have facilities and people who are pressured but nothing changes.
Sarri is unhappy that Lazio were forced to play Bologna 61 hours after their Europa League victory over Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday evening, with the focus on his anger being on the decision to schedule the game for 12:30 pm local time Sunday, instead of a later slot in the day.
Lazio were clearly tired and lethargic at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara yesterday and promptly lost 2-0, shaking the team’s confidence a little after the wins against Roma and Lokomotiv.
Sarri pointed to the match schedule in his post-match comments, with the situation still clearly angering the 62-year-old Italian coach.
