Sarri: "We Must Recognize That It's Not Simple To Escape From This Situation. We Have Strengths And Weaknesses, But We Know We Can Also Be Successful."

After the disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Lecce, Maurizio Sarri attempted to find positives to maintain the confidence of Lazio's supporters towards the end of the season.

Lazio had intended to regain their previous winning ways following their dismal 2-0 defeat to Milan last weekend, but instead lacked the quality they were renowned for at the Stadio Olimpico last Friday, Lecce took a 2-1 lead into the second half.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic salvaged a point for the Biancoceleste in the final minute of the game, this helped them fight for a spot in the top four of the season. Inter's victory against Sassuolo made them overtake The Aquile and made the race for the Champions League zone even more tense.

Sarri sent a message to the fans following the negative reception of the outcome of the match.

"This is a game that also communicates to us that we can extricate ourselves from difficult situations, we are not flat as we were against Milan, this is a signal, hopefully, this is a positive signal," the coach said via LaLazioSiamoNoi.

"I addressed the fans as I did the team, we couldn't concede a goal like the first, and we couldn't be so negative during the second half. Negative energy is something we should avoid."

"We must recognize that it's not simple to escape from this situation, however, we must also understand positively that we're participating in a significant endeavor."

Afterward, the coach discussed the race for the top four this season.

"For us to fail to qualify for the Champions League is not a tragedy, we were not predicted by anyone to qualify for the competition this year. For others, failing to finish in the top four would be a tragedy, but not for us." He said.

"This is the reality: if someone says something negative, I don't care; we have strengths and weaknesses, but we know we can also be successful, and we are still part of the race at this point."
