Lazio Midfielder Milinkovic-Savic: “We Dropped Two Important Points”

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic did not shy away from the team’s issues in their 3-3 draw with Empoli today.

Speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN (via LazioNews24) after the match, the 26-year-old Serbian midfielder first discussed the fact that the team dropped points this afternoon.

We dropped two important points. We tried and gave everything, but we’ll take this point.

We have to learn from today’s mistakes and think about the next game.

He was unsure where Lazio’s issue lie.

I think it’s difficult to explain what’s happening. We must try not to make any more mistakes in the next individual moments.

The Serbian midfielder touched on the team’s mindset and how it affects them when they fall behind.

We have great character. But we mustn’t just show it when we’re down, we must show it from the kick-off.

We have to be better on the pitch.

Finally, Milinkovic-Savic discussed the team’s objective for this season.

I want us to finish in the top four. It’s tough, but there are still lots of games left.

The 26-year-old Milinkovic-Savic, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2024, had a strong match against Empoli, scoring two goals and providing one assist, including a 94th minute equaliser to salvage a point for the Roman club.

Lazio’s draw means that they still sit 8th in the Serie A table, and they are six points behind fourth place Atalanta. The next match is against Inter on Sunday evening.
