Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri spoke highly of his team during last night’s holiday celebrations.
Speaking at the Lazio Christmas dinner (via LazioNews24) last night, the 62-year-old Italian coach was in good spirits discussing his squad and the work that needs to do be done on the pitch.
I’m a closed character. I love these guys, they can do more than they are doing. They have to think as a collective, if they do they will be exalted individually.
I ask to be a team and to have the strength to consistently put on the pitch what we do only in some games.
The team can give more, I can help them find motivation and consistency. I want to close with two wins before the break.
The Biancocelesti currently sit 9th in the Serie A table after the opening 17 games, with 25 points. The Roman side have won seven matches, drawn four and lost six, a lacklustre beginning to Sarri’s tenure.
The 62-year-old Italian coach has agreed to sign a two-year contract extension with Lazio, that would keep him tied to the club until 2025.
Sarri and president Claudio Lotito are already hard at work planning both the upcoming January transfer window as well as next summer’s market.
