Lazio Defender Acerbi: “People Don’t Know What’s Going on in the Dressing Room”

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi was happy with his goal and the 3-1 win over Genoa last night.

Speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 33-year-old Italian defender first touched on his celebration after the goal against the Rossoblu yesterday.

I couldn’t care less about anything, it’s part of our job. Luckily people don’t know what’s going on in the dressing room, it’s only right.

With the players we have and the coach we have, it’s normal not to be happy with tenth place. It’s a difficult moment and we have to get out of it, we’re trying to do almost everything.

The Lazio defender touched on the importance of winning and how dropping the clean sheet was frustrating.

Winning is always good. It’s better to win than to play well. We have to turn our season around. The commitment is always there, we’re still a bit bulky mentally.

We’ve tried to follow Sarri’s ideas, it’s right that he’s angry about the lack of a clean sheet. Now let’s win in Venice too.

Finally, Acerbi touched on the importance of the fans.

Yes, already with COVID there was no one. Now there are five thousand, let’s make do with these.

The 33-year-old Acerbi, who is contracted to Lazio until 2024, has made 22 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1966 minutes. In that time, he has scored two goals and provided two assists, as well as helping the side keep six clean sheets.

Lazio currently sit 8th in the Serie A table after 18 games, eight points behind fourth place Napoli, who face AC Milan tomorrow evening. The Biancocelesti’s final game of 2021 is against Venezia on Wednesday afternoon.
