Lazio sporting director Igli Tare underlined the club’s support of coach Maurizio Sarri.
Speaking in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Albanian sporting director discussed the project in the Italian capital and the support behind the 63-year-old Italian coach.
The concept I wanted to express was very simple, with Sarri there is a shared project and this is also demonstrated by his statements, very correct, after the match against Udinese.
The coach knows that if we manage to unblock the cash flow index and the right conditions are in place, we can do something to improve the team based on his indications and the club would be happy with that.
Otherwise we’re in agreement for a series of additions in the summer to continue to make the squad functional to his ideas.
I hear a lot of talk, but we have a very good relationship.
It has been a difficult first half of the season for Sarri; Lazio currently sit 8th in the Serie A table after 22 games, seven points behind 4th place Atalanta. The team will need to remain consistent in the second half of the season if they want to fight for a European spot.
The 63-year-old Italian coach has been hoping that the Biancocelesti will sign some new reinforcements in this month’s transfer window, namely a new backup striker and left back, but so far no transfer moves have been made due to the now infamous liquidity index.
Lazio need to sell some players first in order to unblock the situation, with the main candidates being Vedat Muriqi and Manuel Lazzari. Neither player is particularly close to departing, as things currently stand.
