Maurizio Sarri Steps Down Lazio Position Following Series of Four Consecutive Defeats


Maurizio Sarri, the ex-Chelsea manager, has allegedly stepped down from his position at Lazio following his team’s fourth consecutive loss across all competitions. Lazio endured a 2-1 defeat in their Serie A match on Monday, marking their 12th loss in 28 games and positioning the team ninth in the league standings.

According to SportMediaSet, as reported by The Sun, Sarri resigned from his position following the recent setback in their campaign.

The club reportedly accepted Sarri’s resignation due to his ‘complicated’ relationship with president Claudio Lotito, stating that they ‘would have dismissed him’ if results didn’t improve. According to the report, the frontrunners to succeed Sarri are Tommaso Rocchi, a legendary former player and the club’s youth team boss, along with sporting director Igli Tare.

During his tenure at Lazio, which began in 2001, Sarri achieved a win percentage of 47.45%, winning 65 matches, drawing 30, and losing 42 out 137 games in charge.

Prior Lazio, Sarri also managed Chelsea, guiding them to the Carabao Cup final in 2018-19 and concluding his tenure with a Europe league triumph. Despite his success, the club opted to dismiss him that summer, replacing him with Frank Lampard.
