Maurizio Sarri Offers to Quit Lazio Job

Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri is ready to leave his managerial post at the Stadio Olimpico if it would solve Biancocelesti’s growing problems. Speaking to the press after a 2-1 loss at Salernitana, the experienced manager offered his resignation, perhaps sarcastically. 

Ciro Immobile fired Lazio in front from the spot on the stroke of halftime. It looked like they’d steamroll to a victory against Serie A basement boys. However, the wheels came off after the break as Salernitana scored twice in quick succession to turn the game on its head and post their first league win of 2023/24. 

A third consecutive match without winning has left Lazio in mid-table, four points adrift of fourth-placed Napoli. But their position in the table isn’t an issue. Sarri’s men are a shadow of a team that finished runners-up in Serie A last term. And the ex-Chelsea manager is ready to step down if the club believes he’s part of the problem.

The squad has lost character and initiative. After scoring a goal in the first half, we came back out hoping to control it for 50 minutes. That is not what our characteristics are as a team,” he said as quoted by Gianluca Di Marzio

If over the next few days I evaluate and find that it is my fault, I will be the first to take the decision to walk away by speaking to the President,” the under-pressure Lazio boss finished.
