Sarri Explains About Middle Finger Incident In Last Match Against Hellas Verona

Lazio managed to beat their guests Hellas Verona 2-0 in Serie A on Sunday night (11/09). Coach Maurizio Sarri then explained the incident of the middle finger being displayed to the opposing team's staff.

Two second-half goals from Ciro Immobile and Luis Alberto gave Lazio a 2-0 victory over Verona in Serie A. Maurizio Sarri has to explain why he gave the visiting team his middle finger.

The sideline incident occurred in the 73rd minute, just after Ciro Immobile's opening goal. Sarri reportedly got into an altercation with a Verona employee named Alessandro Mazzola, the club's team manager, and former Gialloblu midfielder, according to Gazzetta and DAZN.

"I feel like he's telling me to sit down," the manager told a news conference, which La Lazio Siamo Noi quoted.

"After that, we explained it to each other and we both laughed."

The coach also explained his spat with Verona director Francesco Marroccu.

"I've known him for years and he told me to calm down and not sit down."

Another perfect three points brought the Biancoceleste three points behind leaders Napoli, Atalanta, and Milan. They have only lost at home to Napoli in their first six games of the 2022/23 Serie A season.

They will travel to Midtjylland on Thursday for their second Europa League group game, while their next game in Serie A is against Cremonese on Sunday 18 September.

After finishing fifth last season, Aquile is aiming to finish in the top four. Their top scorer Ciro Immobile has three goals in six games, while Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has contributed 23 assists out of 41 for the Italian striker.
