Olimpico Will Be Renovated After Frequent Protest From Sarri And Mourinho

The pitch at the Olimpico stadium will be renovated in the coming months after protests by two clubs in the Italian capital, Lazio and Roma, have been reported.

The Stadio Olimpico will undergo repairs on parts of the pitch following protests by Lazio and Roma. Managers Maurizio Sarri and Jose Mourinho have both stressed the quality of the stadium's playing field in recent months, arguing that it is not suitable for the top teams in Serie A.

The Stadio Olimpico is owned by the Italian National Olympic Committee, not the two clubs, which limits their ability to make changes.

Corriere dello Sport reports that the pitch at the stadium has been grassed to improve the surface during the international break after work in early July last year has proved unsuccessful. Digitaria and weeds have also been removed.

Work continues during this year's World Cup break, which is sure to make Sarri and Mourinho smile after weeks and months of protests, although it remains to be seen whether the changes will be as successful as expected.

Meanwhile, next week, the Biancoceleste host Spezia in Serie A after an international break takes place on Sunday afternoon.

The Giallorossi will travel to Giuseppe Meazza to take on Inter Milan before hosting Betis in the Europa League next week in Stadio Olimpico.
