Lazio coach Sarri upset with Milinkovic-Savic red card in victory at Sampdoria

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri had mixed emotions after their 3-1 win at Sampdoria.

The visitors were 3-0 ahead at halftime and were flat for the second-half.

“We need to be more organised than we have been in recent games, otherwise we lose balance, so today I asked the players to not lose their positions," Sarri said afterwards.

“At times, the team can get a bit too instinctive and lose their shape.

“We passed the ball with quality in the first half and it could've torn any opponent apart. Samp are a good squad, so this result should not be underestimated."

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was sent off for dissent.

Sarri added: “I can tell you exactly what he said to the referee: 'You didn't see a ****ing thing.' For an experienced referee like this, the discussion could've been sorted out without needing to resort to cards.

“Milinkovic-Savic was naïve, but Fabbri was also a bit hasty."
