Sarri invites Lazio squad to lunch in bid to quell rumors

Maurizio Sarri took all his Lazio lunch team in an effort to create a sense of unity in times of uncertainty.

The Biancocelesti boss canceled a day of training in order to take his lads out for a bite to eat in hopes Lazio can unify and push for a European spot.

The only absentee was Lazio sporting director Igli Tare, who has been at the center of recent rumors that seem to point to a falling out between him and the manager over failed transfers in January, according to Il Messaggero.

Sarri took the opportunity to shut down the gossip surrounding his own future, after it was reported he had already accepted an offer from another club – possibly West Ham United – for next season, as Calciomercato reported.

As for on-pitch matters, the Biancocelesti travel to Fiorentina for Saturday night’s Serie A fixture. Lazio currently sit in seventh place with 36 points, just two behind city rivals Roma in the Europa League Conference qualifying spot and six behind Juventus who hold the Europa League position.
