Marusic Doesn’t Shy Away From Lazio’s ‘Heavy Defeat’ Against Roma, ‘We Apologise’

Adam Marusic apologised to the Lazio fans following the painful Derby della Capitale loss to Roma yesterday.

The Biancocelesti immediately collapsed at the Stadio Olimpico yesterday evening following Tammy Abraham’s opening minute goal. The Giallorossi kept up the pressure, scoring two more before half time to fully sink Maurizio Sarri’s side, who couldn’t recover from the early blows.

Speaking to Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game, Marusic first touched on how Roma’s immediate goal sunk Lazio.

Their immediate goal changed the game. We tried to play, but we didn’t succeed. They entered the pitch with more determination.

We tried in the second half, but it wasn’t easy after the disadvantage.

He touched on the flying elbow that hit Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the match.

The referee told us it was a normal contact in play. So he didn’t whistle anything.

There’s nothing we can do about it.

Marusic apologised to the Lazio fans for the disappointing derby performance.

We should have been more aggressive. Today is a heavy defeat. We apologise to the fans.

Now we have to start again, move forward and think about the next game.

Finally, Marusic discussed Lazio’s goals and objectives for this season.

We have to do our best in these eight games and then we’ll see.

The 29-year-old Marusic, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until the end of the season, has made 33 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2675 minutes. In that time, he’s proven himself to be a tactically flexible and consistent option.
