Sarri Is Relying on Milinkovic-Savic to Be the Star in Lazio vs Inter

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri is relying on midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to shine in the upcoming match against Inter.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 26-year-old Serbian midfielder usually impresses against the Nerazzurri and will have to replicate these highlights again in Saturday’s match, a key game for Sarri and the squad.

Milinkovic-Savic has scored for Lazio in his last three consecutive matches against Inter, something that new Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi knows well.

Sarri is expecting the Serbian midfielder to shine again against the Milanese and wants him to be a leader on the pitch, something that was clearly lacking in the 3-0 loss to Bologna before the international break.
