Lazio full-back Adam Marusic is happy with his place in coach Maurizio Sarri’s squad ahead of tomorrow’s game against Hellas Verona.
Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 29-year-old Montenegrin full-back first remembered his debut Serie A goal against the Gialloblu five years ago.
I scored my first goal at the Bentegodi, it’s true.
I’ve grown a lot, I’ve been here for 5 years, I think we’ll get a great result tomorrow.
The Lazio full-back commented on the need for the team to find some consistency.
Every day we try to improve in this, in Bologna we lost, we want to win, we will try to do it.
Marusic touched on if he will sign a contract renewal with the Roman club. His current deal expires next year in 2022.
I feel good here, I have a good relationship with the club, we are talking, let’s see what happens.
He spoke about how tomorrow’s match will be a battle on the wings.
Yes, they have many strong players there.
We played on Thursday, we have to recover and play well to win.
The Montenegrin full-back discussed how he has become a consistent part of the Biancocelesti squad now, after starting a little slow.
The last two years I played a lot, I feel good, it is important for a player when he feels good.
First two years I had problems, now I’m fine and I want to continue like this.
Marusic did not think that the pecking order in the squad was relevant following coach Maurizio Sarri’s arrival.
We are all on the same level, we are united, everyone plays, we are a group of strong players, when one isn’t well it is normal that someone else plays.
The 29-year-old touched on the differences between playing on the left side of the defence and playing on the right side.
Already last year I played on both sides and also as part of a back-three. Now I have played right and left fullback, I find myself in the same way.
There is a little bit of difference, but there are no problems.
The Lazio full-back discussed the differences between working under Simone Inzaghi and Sarri.
We were five years with Inzaghi, we played in a different system, with Sarri so much has changed, we work more.
This year we are all united, all ready to give our best for the squad.
He spoke about if he will play centre back tomorrow.
It’s not my decision, if I have to do it I will.
Finally, Marusic spoke about the squad’s awareness working under Sarri.
We all see that we can do very well, we work every day, we’ll see what happens next.
