azio coach Maurizio Sarri threatened to quit after their 2-1 defeat to Salernitana.
Lazio had the lead through Ciro Immobile’s penalty before Salernitana stormed back.
Asked how president Claudio Lotito may react, Sarri said: “If I was him, I would make a strong intervention. I am not a fan in general of training retreats, but something has to be done to break this inertia.
“The squad has lost character and initiative. After scoring a goal in the first half, we came back out hoping to control it for 50 minutes. That is not what our characteristics are as a team.”
He also stated:
“Something clearly is not working. If I was certain that I was the problem, then I would immediately step down. I don’t understand how I have been treating them differently to last season. If anything, I think I’m being harder on them.
“If over the next few days I evaluate and find that it is my fault, I will be the first to take the decision to walk away by speaking to the President.”
