Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri was delighted with their 3-0 win against Salernitana.
Ciro Immobile struck twice in the opening 10 minutes, with Manuel Lazzari completed the rout on the counter-attack.
“We’ve made progress in the areas we’ve been working on for months,” Sarri told DAZN.
“Our performance against Inter wasn’t bad, so we’re starting to see a little consistency at last and I hope it carries on like this. If we took out the results that were straight after our Europa League games, we’d be in a much stronger position. The inability to recover that focus from Europe really did damage us.”
On Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Sarri added: “I have coached many great players, but he is one of the best I’ve ever worked with. His progress over the last two months has been excellent and he really can take another step up in quality. He used to lose the ball too cheaply, but now he plays with more determination.
“Immobile too has improved in the way he plays with the team and of course is phenomenal in the box. Now he opens up spaces for his teammates too.”
