Di Canio: "They Should Have Ciro's Replacement, They Don't Need To Bring In Famous Players, But They Can't Just Use One Striker."

Paolo Di Canio recently criticized Lazio for failing to find a new backup striker in the summer marketplace. As a result, the Italian club has no replacement for Ciro Immobile; who is currently sidelined due to a hamstring injury until the new year.

Lazio is in an unfavorable position due to Ciro Immobile's hamstring injury. Lazio's current formation, which is a 4-3-3, can't function without a pure striker. As a result, coach Maurizio Sarri has to adapt to using Felipe Anderson or Pedro as false nines to pose a threat in his attack.

Di Canio commented on Immobile's injury and the lack of a backup striker for the Biancoceleste.

"It's the wrong mindset, if they want to leap, with what he does on the pitch, the quality he brings, and the energy he expends, they should have a backup striker," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"For a while, they were planning to rest him. For example, in the home game against Spezia, the substitute striker should come on."

"They should have Ciro's replacement, they don't need to bring in famous players, but they can't just use one striker."

The Aquile is suffering without their first-choice striker, with Sarri looking to get as many points as possible before the World Cup hiatus and keep fighting for a Champions League spot.

Meanwhile, Immobile is reportedly set to step aside and resume until January next year, limiting the Italian capital's attacking options.
