Fabrizio Romano claims that the Serbian national team player will certainly not leave Lazio this winter In recent days, an attractive topic in the Italian media has been the relationship between Sergej Milinković-Savić and Lazio coach Maurizio Sari.
The Italian strategist extended his contract with the club a week ago, and it is clear that his future is at the Olympics, while Sergej is in question at the same time. According to the information of Il Messaggero from a few days ago, the Serbian football player left the Lazio Christmas dinner earlier, which the experienced strategist characterized as a insolent move, and it is increasingly certain that he could leave the Italian capital during the winter break.
However, summarizing the statements of both Sarri and SMS after today's victory on the road to Venice, parting in January is unlikely. This is, after all, claimed by the well-informed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. "I see that there is a lot of speculation and gossip about me, but I don't care about that.
I just want Lazio to win," said the Serbian international. In the fifth minute of the overtime in the city on the water, Sergej ideally gave the ball to Luis Albert before he sealed the victory of the Sky Blues.
Sarri on Milinkovic-Savic
That is how the Serb reached the sixth assist in the season, in addition to which he has five goals.
In the last four appearances, he scored and set goals twice. Sarri did not praise him after the victory in the north of Italy, but he did not miss the opportunity to stand in the way of speculations that there is evil blood between Sergej and him.
"I had only one conflict with Luis Alberto four months ago. I read one of the biggest lie of recent times, and that is that I am in conflict with Milinković-Savić," and then the former coach of Napoli, Juventus and Chelsea continued: "It seems to me that we are growing.
This season is a complex journey, full of difficulties. Everyone is talking about us as a team that relies primarily on dribbling, and we are second or third in the championship in vertical conquest of the field," Sarri concluded.
There is no doubt that in that conquest of the field, Milinković-Savić is one of Sarri's most useful and most powerful weapons, with the ability to build, save the ball, and open the space to the offensive with a pass forward.
Lazio is not in the best shape and they don't need things like this. This is, after all, claimed by the well-informed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
