Mario Gila impressed Maurizio Sarri in Lazio’s pre-season friendly against Qatar yesterday, putting in a good performance.
The Biancocelesti failed to break the deadlock in their rather unique friendly against the Qatar national team last night, leaving the match to end goalless. Gila was one of the highlights for Lazio, having a good game as he showed off his speed, reaction speed and duelling ability.
Gila had excellent movement on and off the ball, and both his tackling and marking were also impressive. Sarri is starting to appreciate the pairing of the Spaniard and Alessio Romagnoli, with the duo looking more in tune than a defence involving Nicolo Casale.
Sarri will continue to tinker with his defence as he looks for the right setup ahead of the new campaign, aware that some players take a little longer to adapt to his system than others.
Lazio’s final pre-season friendly is on 6th August against Valladolid.
