Lazio coach Sarri on Midtjylland thumping: These sudden emotional collapses keep happening

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri was left furious with his players after their 5-1 defeat at Europa League opponents Midtjylland.

Sarri is fuming after another collapse from his players.

“Unfortunately, at times Lazio do not turn up at all and it is even worse in Europe, because we had been making progress on that,” Sarri told Sky Italia.

“We had no humility at all. We thought that we’d fixed this problem, but with this mentality, you’ll get nothing out of your legs.”

Sarri continued: “It is my responsibility, I will deal with the players. I will demand an explanation from them, because I saw this immense arrogance and presumption. We were all standing still and with a low tempo, as if we were 4-0 up and cruising.

“These sudden emotional collapses are similar to last year. It’s difficult to understand the motivation. I need to work out, if it’s me who has to take a step back, or a player who needs to leave.”
