A field day at Formello, as the Tuscan coach announced that he would put an end to his adventure in the early afternoon and, after an intense conversation with sporting director Fabiani and Primavera director Alberto Bianchi, left the Lazio Sports Centre. The defeat against Udinese (the twelfth in the league, the sixteenth this season, and the fourth in a row) was the straw that broke the camel's back, which was almost full after complicated weeks (with collapses against Bologna and Fiorentina or the fierce refereeing disputes that followed). Milan).

Thus, Sarri will bid farewell to Lazio after two and a half intense years, consisting of highs (second place last season, winning four derbies in a row) and lows (disappointing results in Europe and the Conference League and progress this season). In the Italian League).'Year). Yesterday, the coach in the locker room asked the team directly if they wanted him to say goodbye: the lack of a direct response from the players must have convinced him that he was no longer in control of things and therefore it was right to step aside. The rebel team's position on the possibility of a punitive withdrawal served as further confirmation. Two months after Mourinho said goodbye to Roma, the capital team also changes direction: the fate of the two coaches, who arrived in the summer of 2021 and were welcomed with joy and amazement, meet again, this time united as one team. An early farewell.

The cycle may have ended. Meanwhile, bitterness over the choice of coach is taking over on social media. “The second person in 20 years to take responsibility for mistakes that were not his. You were a beautiful dream that was short-lived but we know that.” Now that the people Lazio are destined to dream,” we read, while others praise the fact that he is resigning, giving up his $5 million net salary. “Resigning in this country is now an old gesture. Resigning and leaving 'a lot of money on the table is now an unknown gesture.' For Sarri Lazio's farewell, if confirmed, will be a “first”: he has never finished a season early since he coached in Serie A (Empoli, Napoli and Juventus). The team, suddenly orphaned by technical direction, trained in the gym with the staff. He will remain in decline, but the club must take action and find a new owner for the seat. Because after Sarri, the solutions under consideration at the moment will be former players: the names mentioned are those of Tommaso Rocci (even if the hypothesis of a youth coach seems to have lost its force), and the candidacy of Miro Klose who could continue the team until the end of the season.
