“Mourinho doesn’t interest me, the match will be between Lazio and Rome”

“It didn’t bother me to stay out because seeing the empty stadiums gave me a great sense of sadness”. These are the first words of the new coach of the Lazio Maurizio Sarri that a year and a half later he returned to speak exclusively to Sportitalia interviewed by Alfredo Pedullà: “Many clubs also looked for me in the race for Napoli in January but I said no”. For a moment he goes back to Juve with whom he won the Scudetto: “That title was taken too much for granted, I remember that we celebrated each one on his own, this would have been the right year after a fourth place that was instead celebrated. Ronaldo? It is a difficult multinational to manage ”.

Now it will be derby with Mourinho: “But it’s just journalistic stuff forbecause it will be the match between Lazio and Rome. It will be important to do a great job and make sure that the team plays great football, if the coach and the players have fun then the fans also have fun then it means that you win ”. Then he confirms: “I was close to Roma but now I think about my new adventure”.

Now the head is only at Lazio where he will have to go from Inzaghi’s 3-5 2 to his 4-3-3: “In the current squad there are no high wielders and something will have to be done on the market but I would like to talk about Lazio when I will be presneted for a matter of fairness”.

While waiting for the Felipe Anderson and Hysaj operations to be defined, Lazio in the meantime has closed a shot in perspective: it is the 2004 class Luka Romero, attacking midfielder of Real Mallorca, who made his debut in the Liga in 2020 at 15 years and 219 days, becoming the youngest player ever to take the field for the first time in the Spanish top flight. A five-year contract is expected on Friday in Rome for the usual medical examinations, then he will go on retreat in Auronzo with his new companions.

While waiting for the meeting, Luiz Felipe went to the Paideia clinic for medical checks on the operated ankle. The recovery is going well and the Brazilian is ready to start the new season in the best possible way. Front goalkeeper likes Gollini, ‘dropped’ by Atalanta, but the 20 million requested by the Orobics are a good obstacle to possible negotiations.
