Lazio coach Sarri defends Immobile; slams Italian facilities: Where the f*** am I?

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri insists Ciro Immobile shouldn't be criticised as he is after Italy's World Cup qualifying failure.

Sarri has defended his striker and also launched an attack on the state of Italy's football facilities.

He said, “I spoke to Immobile and I told him what I think. He is becoming the national team's scapegoat and he knows exactly what's behind it. I'd know what to do in his place, let's see what he decides.

“It's useless to say what I'd do, it's all down to Ciro. He is fully committed to this environment. He is reactive, I am not worried about his performance with Lazio.

“I have my idea and I've heard silly things about Italian football. Italy had 35 shots (32) against North Macedonia and conceded a goal with just two goals on target.

“Here, we are 30-35 years behind the others, but nobody talks about structures and training facilities. When I moan about the turfs, they say that I always complain. If you watch a Bundesliga game and you switch to one of Serie A, you ask yourself: 'Where the f*** am I?"
