Sarri: ‘We have to complete a marathon’

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri was happy with his team’s 4-0 victory over Fiorentina but believes they have only just started a marathon of a season. The Biancocelesti had played in the Europa League last week and were still recovering from a tough loss when heading into this game. Speaking after the match, Sarri spoke of the need to pace themselves:

We both came from the European match and we did well to take advantage of their downturn moment, there is satisfaction for the victory on a difficult pitch, but we have to complete a marathon and we have only done 7-8 kilometres.

Fiorentina are a difficult team, first in all the attacking rankings. They are a team that attacks with many men and once in the lead it was normal to wait for them to be lower, conceding numerical parity.

The people of Lazio were a surprise, it gets inside your skin after some time. I found the desire to train in this environment. It is I who thank them.”
