Sarri warns Lazio: ‘Don’t get ahead of ourselves’

Maurizio Sarri says Lazio should ‘not get ahead of ourselves’ after their 6-1 win over Spezia.

A Ciro Immobile hat-trick helped the Biancocelesti take all three points home at the Stadio Olimpico in their first home Serie A game this season.

“I had told the team not to sit deep as we had done against Empoli because I don’t like it. We were much better today, it was easier when we were one man up,” Sarri told DAZN.

The Biancocelesti have six points after the first two games against Empoli and Spezia, but Sarri warned his lads: “In these new experiences the growth path is almost never linear, we know that we still have to work a lot to grow, we must not get ahead of ourselves after just two games.

“I didn’t like the first fifteen minutes of the defensive line. Both in Empoli and today, we conceded a goal with the first opportunity. We didn’t get into the game badly. Two clues don’t make evidence, but they give us a bit of concern.

“In the first game, we tried to give a little more solidity. Luis Alberto is growing in condition, today I thought it was more useful the keep the ball.

“I’m used to choosing based on the condition and the opponent to face. Today, I wanted to move the ball quickly to avoid their aggressiveness”.
