Lotito: ‘Lazio Started Last Season Badly Too, Mustn’t Overdramatize’

Lazio president Claudio Lotito did not seem too concerned when discussing the team’s slow start to the season, calling it ‘early days’.

The Biancocelesti have suffered their worst Serie A start in over two decades, managing to pick up just four points from their opening five games. The only highlights have been a 2-1 win over Napoli and a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League opener.

Maurizio Sarri is keen to turn things around as soon as possible, wanting to ensure that Lazio are in the right spots as the race for a top four finish starts to take shape.

Speaking to Corriere di Roma (via TMW), Lotito first reacted to Lazio’s poor start to the season.

There is no room for relative opinions, results speak. Unfortunately. We have to trust in the team’s potential.

The boys, all together, must rediscover the mechanisms that allowed us to arrive second. Because we have goals, we need a turnaround.

The Biancocelesti president then reflected on what’s gone wrong at the start of this campaign and how things can be improved.

It’s been five or six games, it’s early days. We have to improve the condition of the team. A lot of new players have been brought in and they still have to understand the system. Some of them don’t speak the language.

I’m confident because we had a bad start last year too, so we mustn’t overdramatize. The important thing is that the team is aware of their own means. Awareness is fundamental for the achievement of goals.

Patience is starting to run out with supporters, many of whom loudly jeered the players after the full time whistle in the 1-1 draw with Monza.

  1. Loudly jeered, but then applauded and sent them to rediscover what they lost and let me say sometuing: against Torino that’s exactly what the lads did.

    Well done and a special shout out to Rovella who did great for his 1st start and was my man of the match.

    Imagine Taty scored there… and Isaksen should get the nod on Felipe so he can rest and recover because other then the goal influence he was dull. Ciro definitely must be taken of and thank God we won this match with him on the pitch basically so he isn’t swapped after a bad game, but he clearly needs a but if rest to calm him a bit and he could score when coming on in dieing minutes (do a Felipe Caicedo).

    Forza Lazio Carica 🤍💙
