Maurizio Sarri doesn't mince words when describing Lazio 's performance, beaten at the Franchi by Fiorentina 2-1 and coming back from a comeback. Had it not been for the 4 posts taken by Viola (one of which was a penalty) the result would have been even more mortifying. His team broke up at a distance and collapsed under the blows, pace and greater determination of the Tuscans who needed an important success to relaunch themselves in the standings, towards the European zone.

“Even when we were lame we could have done better than what we did tonight” , the words of the coach to Dazn who photograph the moment his team went through. “In the first half we took the lead undeservedly and in the changing rooms, during the break, I was very clear with the boys: that result would not have been carried to the end with that attitude.”

In summary: he does not have a squad so deep and equipped to withstand the impact of multiple competitions, from the championship to the Champions League, always expressing himself at high levels. This also explains the daring swoops and sudden rises (as happened in the first leg of the Cup against Bayern) or the sudden gaps during the match in progress: “We were too flat compared to an undeserved advantage and we continued to be too after a penalty missed by the opponents and after the disadvantage”.

“We also have some extenuating circumstances – added the coach, who mentions the precarious health conditions of many of the protagonists -. Three players took to the pitch with flu symptoms, others had just one training session in a month… another three players need to take a breather but it's not possible given the way things are. The risk was there but tonight this decline was a bit too accentuated. I'm left wondering whether we don't have the material and mental strength to make three -four competitions”.

Sarri cites two example cases to explain more clearly what the management difficulties are and how difficult it is to be able to put in place the best possible formation without losing something in terms of quality and brilliance. It's the story of the too-short blanket: you pull it and you only risk tearing it. “We included Zaccagni and Vecino out of desperation because they wouldn't have been ready to come in… Zaccagni did two training sessions in forty days. Vecino even only did one yesterday. We forced their return… I hope they can fully recover and come back to give us a hand” .
