Only 4 points in the first 5 weeks speak of a crisis of the runner-up team of Italy. Lazio, at the start of a very busy season, denounced by Sarri some time ago, paradoxically won only in the field of Naples and lost points against Lecce, Juventus, Genoa and Monca.
Lazio post Igli Tare is turning out to be a disaster. The former Albanian sports director left in the summer after many years at the blue and white team. Sarri is worried about the state of the team, but the one who is furious with this progress is the president Claudio Lotito. On the eve of the match with Torino, he canceled the rest day and ordered a forced gathering for the players.
Usually, gathering the day before the match is optional, but this time everyone is forced to stay in the sports center. Such a situation has happened before with Lazio during Sarri's time.
There was some friction between president Lotito and coach Sarri during and after the Lazio-Monca match, 1-1. "You should have put in Castellanos", Lotito shouted to the coach and these words were heard by all those present. There is also dissatisfaction with Laxarri, who stayed on the bench for the third time in a row.
Sarri has spoken with the players to understand the problem of this weak start, which is most likely psychological. The departure of Milinkovi?-Savi?, meanwhile, has left a big hole in the team.
