Maurizio Sarri Blames FIFA and UEFA for Lazio Horror Serie A Start

Maurizio Sarri has lashed out at the leading governing bodies in football, FIFA and UEFA, as well as Serie A, after his Lazio side lost yet another game. Biancocelesti slipped to a 2-0 defeat to high-flying Milan at San Siro on Saturday, leaving the experienced coach to lament ‘this crazy calendar.’ 

Lazio cannot catch a break this season. Claudio Lotito and Sarri were not seeing eye to eye during the summer transfer window. Their disagreements resulted in Biancocelesti missing out on several targets. But those they have touched down at Stadio Olimpico have yet to impress.

On top of that, Lazio have endured an injury-hit start to the season. With several players ruled out with fitness problems and fatigue catching up with those frequently played by Sarri, they’ve stuttered at the beginning of the new campaign. Only two wins across the first seven Serie A rounds have left Lazio stranded in the lower reaches. 

Whether Lotito considers sacking Sarri, who inspired his team to a runner-up finish last term, remains uncertain. The former Juventus manager has failed to deliver in the early goings. He believes Serie A, FIFA, and UEFA have a fair share of credit for Lazio’s dreadful results in 2023/24.

It’s the choice dictated by a crazy calendar,” the Lazio boss said, as relayed by TMW. “I’m ferociously p****d off at UEFA, FIFA, Lega Serie A, and all this gang for this crazy schedule. 

They are sending these guys to the slaughterhouse without anyone intervening. This is football. Take the money and run.

Lazio will be back in action on Wednesday when they play Celtic in the Champions League.
