Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri highlighted his limited options for tonight’s Coppa Italia clash against Udinese.
Speaking to Lazio’s media outlets (via LazioNews24) yesterday, Sarri first discussed his desire to take the Coppa Italia seriously this campaign and he noted the restricted state of his squad.
The spirit must be to pass the round. The event is important and we have to face it without thinking about the previous round or the next ones.
It’s just a pity that we don’t have enough players available to face the match. We have six or seven absentees, but we have to go straight ahead.
The 63-year-old Italian coach underlined how he couldn’t rotate too heavily for the match against Udinese.
We’ll make a few changes, but there won’t be too many because we can’t make any at the moment.
We need to keep up the pace we saw in the last game. It’s clear that the Salernitana game should be taken with a grain of salt, because there were a lot of absentees and we don’t know how far our merits go and where their difficulties begin
However, we played quality football and we must continue on that path.
A number of Lazio players are currently sidelined with injuries; Francesco Acerbi, Stefan Radu, Toma Basic, Andre Anderson and Pedro are all unavailable for tonight’s match.
