Sarri Urges Investment to Make Lazio More Competitive

Three late goals at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza saw Lazio fall to a crushing 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Nerazzurri, and Biancocelesti coach Maurizio Sarri believes reinforcements are needed if the club wishes to stay competitive. Lazio chief Claudio Lotito has so far backed the boss and sporting director Igli Tare with their decisions, with the club seemingly preparing itself for a busy transfer period.

Speaking to the press (via LaLazioSiamoNoi) after the loss to Inter, Sarri urged the club to make investments going forward as Lazio lead the fray to play in the UEFA Champions League next season.

“Matches are won in many ways: with the tehnical, physical, or mental capacities, or by switching gear. In fact, I told you that this game demonstrates that there is still a gap to cover between us and the top-level teams in our championship. Part of it can be covered by work, but part must be compensated by bringing in new talent.”

Sarri then denied making any comments surrounding the race to finish in the top four.

“I don’t know who has an advantage. I try to get away from everything and I don’t look at the calendars of the other teams. There is a month left to go and whoever feels better mentally and physically will go there.”

Following the loss, Lazio still sit in second position, although just one point ahead of Juventus and four ahead of Inter, who are level on 57 points with Milan (5th) and Roma (6th).
