Sarri after the elimination from the Conference League at the hands of AZ Alkmaar has underlined what he says are the limits of Lazio.
Maurice Sarri he did not have particular confidence in the European potential of his Lazio, which came out of the conference league at the hands of AZ Alkmaar. The coach underlined what he defined as the team’s “structural limitations” which, according to him, should be improved from all points of view. Here then is his analysis, after having bitterly ascertained how Lazio collapsed after the draw collected by the Dutch.
According to the coach, Lazio didn’t have more competitions in their ropes this season. The far from veiled reference is also to a squad that according to Sarri is probably not numerically up to the situation. These are his words to the microphones of Sky: “We do not have the structure to do more than one competition at a time. Structure from every point of view, physical, mental, numerical. It’s an easy observation to make, every time we make five or six changes we pay the consequences”.
The comparison with AZ Alkmaar starts above all from the youth sector, where the difference, according to him, is embarrassing: “We are not ready for these competitions. How to improve? From all points of view. They gave Real Madrid 5-2 in the Youth League and we’re playing in Primavera 2, we’re starting to improve from there.”

But how can we move forward now, starting with the Rome derby, considering that so many players aren’t in top form? Sarri reiterates the concept: “The derby. It’s not that there are some players who aren’t in condition… they’ve been playing from January 4th to today we’ve played every 3-4 maximum 5 days. I’m running out of energy but for quite logical reasons for the amount of minutes played in the last few days. Something I wouldn’t do? It’s not like you could think of being extremely competitive. I knew that Europe would be a problem for us, then the choices are made from time to time on the basis of sensations and numbers. It is not that what was done could be distorted.
