Il Messaggero newspaper reports Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri is furious following the January transfer window and wants to be involved in the club’s decisions in the future, or he will reject a contract extension.
Sarri signed a two-year deal with the Biancocelesti with an option for a further season.
There were reports that President Claudio Lotito is already considering a contract extension for the former Chelsea and Juventus coach, but the Biancocelesti’s January transfer window could lead to a different scenario.
According to Il Messaggero newspaper, Sarri was not impressed with Lazio’s transfer activity in the January window.
He expected to see a new full-back and a centre midfielder join the club as well as a replacement for Vedal Muriqi.
The Kosovo international joined Mallorca on the deadline day, and the Biancocelesti signed Jovine Cabral.
According to the report, there are doubts regarding the new striker’s fitness and Sarri is described as ‘furious’ following the January transfer window.
The 63-year-old has reportedly informed the club that he will not sign a contract extension if he won’t be involved in the decision process during the future transfer windows.
Journalist Alfredo Pedullà, a close friend of Sarri, has confirmed that the coach is disappointed and that his future at the Stadio Olimpico ‘will not depend on a piece of paper omulti-yearar contracts.’
#Sarri, riflessioni profonde e delusione inevitabile: gennaio era un passaggio importante per il lavoro di semina. Il futuro non dipenderà da un pezzo di carta o da contratti pluriennali
