Lazio coach Sarri: We leave Europa League with a bitter taste in our mouths

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri says his squad always struggled with the Europa League after defeat to Porto on Thursday night.

Lazio were bundled out 4-3 on aggregate after drawing 2-2 at home on Thursday night.

“We played a good game, but leave with a bitter taste in our mouths,” Sarri told Sky Italia.

“We had a real wobble for 10 minutes after conceding the first goal, but if we’d managed to get the equaliser for 2-2 earlier, I am convinced we would’ve scored again and taken it to extra time.

“Porto reached the Champions League quarter-finals last season, we knew they were a great team. We take the positive performance and finally now we’ll be able to train properly during the week.”

Sarri also said: “We struggled to be competitive on three fronts, because playing every three days with new injuries every week, it was tricky. However, I finally get the feeling this is a team now, and that is an important step forward.

“Now we hope to recharge the batteries in time for the next match, even if we feel very tired right now.”
