Petkovic: 'Too many mistakes'

Vladimir Petkovic was again forced to rue Lazio mistakes against Juventus and sent a message to the club about Burak Yilmaz.

The Biancocelesti lost 4-0 in the Italian Super Cup two weeks ago and 4-1 in Serie A this evening.

“You cannot give Juventus the opportunity to score certain goals,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“We need to be sharper and more clear-headed both in defence and attack, because we had our chances too.

“We went too deep and allowed too much space to the Bianconeri, a very strong side who keep the ball well and burst through with their midfielders. We should’ve been tighter and more compact.

“Now there is the break for international duty and we must reflect on how to avoid certain situations.”

Lazio President Claudio Lotito continues to insist there is no interest in Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz, but Petkovic isn’t so sure.

“Yilmaz? Burak has an excellent CV and is certainly a great player.”
