Sarri Highlights His Happiness at Lazio Following Confident 3-0 Win Over Fiorentina

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri was feeling incredibly positive following the confident 3-0 win over Fiorentina yesterday.

Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 63-year-old Italian coach first discussed the performance in the match.

You have to respect the characteristics of the players and we’re good at breaking forward. Today I liked the personality and the ability to dribble. I think the ball was hot.

The Lazio coach touched on how much better the team perform when they’re not taking part in mid-week games.

It’s not by chance that we give our best without midweek fixtures. Sometimes we played the third game after about 60 hours. This has definitely led us to pay something.

Sarri commented on the characteristics of this Lazio team and the strengths of star striker Ciro Immobile.

I’m not as fundamentalist as people say. This team has a centre forward who scores 30 goals a season.

So we have to start from that. Then today I saw a lot of things we try in training.

He gave his thoughts on the Biancocelesti defence, who did well to keep a clean sheet against the Viola yesterday.

Ramos is the one who is most likely to make certain choices. Patric is surprising me. He’s reading games and the defence whilst playing. The path we’ve taken can be the right one.

Finally, Sarri spoke about the January transfer window and the progress of his team.

It was certainly right to send players off to play so as not to weigh down the dressing room. The market is now closed.

I see the guys growing a lot, even if everyone is assessed on the basis of results. I enjoy the training sessions. Now we’ll have a tour de force and it will be difficult to work. The sensations were and remain positive.

Lazio’s next match is their Coppa Italia quarter-final clash against Milan on Wednesday next week, before they face Bologna on the weekend.

The win over Fiorentina means that the Biancocelesti now sit 6th in the Serie A table, tied on points with intercity rivals Roma.
