Martusciello: "It Will Take Time To See What We Did In Training Can Be Transmitted To A Game Situation"

Lazio still has not returned to winning ways after being held to a 1-1 draw by hosts Torino in the Serie A continuation which took place on Thursday (23/09) evening local time.  Maurizio Sarri's assistant coach, Giovanni Martusciello admitted again that his team was still unable to absorb some of the new tactical principles applied.

Marko Pjaca gave Torino the lead with a header and then Vedat Muriqi was brought down in the box by Koffo Djidji and the referee awarded a penalty to Lazio and Ciro Immobile was successfully executed.

"A good performance against a team that is difficult to face at the moment," said Martusciello via Sky Sport Italia on behalf of Sarri who was suspended for two games.

Lazio started the season with two wins but has since picked up just two points from four games between Serie A and the Europa League.

"In football, there's no need to overreact, we struggled in the first half and conceded a goal, but the reaction was positive, and was able to score the equalizer."

No doubt this is still not considered a Sarri team and once raises the question of how long it will take the coach to get his team to conform to his principles of football.

"We lacked consistency in training because we didn't have much time to work so we still couldn't absorb some of the tactical principles.

"The result has been obtained, we want to propose a different style of football than the one that has been applied at Lazio for the last four or five years.  The players have enjoyed it, but it will take time to see what we did in training can be transmitted to a game situation."

There's not much time left before Sunday's Derby Della Capitale clash with Roma.

"I'm not worried, we can play well next Sunday, Torino has a way to make the opposing team suffer and that's what they did today."
