Lazio full-back Manuel Lazzari touched on the team’s determination in their 1-0 win against Fiorentina last night.
Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 27-year-old Italian full-back first commented on the difficulty of the match against the Viola yesterday.
Today was difficult, Fiorentina have an important squad and a good coach. He is getting great results, it was one of the worst games that could happen to us, but we went in with the right attitude, we wanted the result at all costs.
Now we have to recover our energy for Bergamo and play a great game away from home, where we have inconsistent results.
As defenders we have to understand as soon as possible all the coach’s concepts, we have very strong forwards up front.
He gave his thoughts on the strength of the Biancocelesti squad.
The group has always been close, it’s normal to decide for the retreat, we accepted it without problems.
We looked at each other in the face, trying to understand the mistakes. Now we go forward on this road.
Finally, Lazzari refused to call this period a crisis.
A big word. We were close to the Champions League, our goal.
Then seeing matches like Bologna and Verona makes you ask two questions, now we try to understand why and we go forward.
The 27-year-old Lazzari, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2024, has made nine appearances so far this season, for a total of 423 minutes.
In that time, he has scored one goal and successfully proved that he can adapt to Sarri’s four-man defence.
Lazio’s next game is against Atalanta on Saturday afternoon, an important match in the fight for a top-four finish.
