Sarri Expels Exit Talk, Reveals ‘Strange Love’ at Lazio

Maurizio Sarri is sure to stay put for seasons to come after he expressed his love for Lazio, revealing that the club has ‘invaded’ his life. The ex-Chelsea and Napoli manager signed a contract extension at the start of the season, gluing him to the Biancocelesti dugout for at least until the summer of 2025. He commented in an interview with Il Messaggero (via Tuttomercatoweb).

“Lazio is strange: from the outside you don’t realize it, from the inside it invades you. I feel good here, everyone has made me feel important and involved. I have another two years on my contract. If nothing out of the ordinary happens, I have a long-term project, and I want to end my career here.”

Lazio chief Claudio Lotito is on the same page as well. The club president has concretely backed his manager, expressing that another extension isn’t necessary.

“There’s no need yet for the renewal. I already did it by securing him last June with another two-and-a-half-year contract. We have to continue on this path and with this union. I’ve never had any doubts about Maurizio and his strength”.

Sarri has taken charge of 88 games at the Biancocelesti so far. Lazio are in line to finish second this season, enroute to playing in the UEFA Champions League next season, as they lie four points ahead of Milan and 16 behind league leaders Napoli.
