Sarri: "If You Believe The Issue Lies With Me, Speak Up And Address Lotito."

February 07, 2024

Lazio is currently grappling with a sense of heaviness both on and off the field, creating an unwelcoming atmosphere within the team. Players are growing increasingly disenchanted with Maurizio Sarri's playing style, finding it monotonous and lacking in enjoyment. During the Atalanta-Lazio match, sporting director Angelo Fabiani intervened to rally the team, but he wasn't alone in his efforts. According to Corriere dello Sport, Sarri's demeanor during training the following day was stern, as he challenged the players, saying, "If you believe the issue lies with me, speak up and address Lotito."

The prevailing sentiment suggests that the relationship between the players and the coach has deteriorated, with players seemingly rejecting Sarri's tactics. In today's edition of Il Corriere dello Sport, it's reported that the team has requested a change in formation, preferring either the 4-2-3-1 or the 4-3-1-2. However, Sarri dismissed this suggestion, fearing it would diminish the team's strengths. Within the locker room, there's a growing intolerance towards criticism and lectures, with many players deflecting blame rather than taking responsibility.

The discontent extends beyond the playing style to the lack of motivation and communication from Sarri within the locker room, as reported by Il Messaggero. It's a situation that appears to have only one resolution, but there's hope that circumstances may improve before reassessment in June.
