The Giallorossi coach blurts out, but also the Lazio one: they can no longer prepare their matches and see their efforts thwarted because of the pitch. But we know why
“After 20 minutes the Olimpico field looked like a potato field, you can’t, you can’t go on like this “. It is not anyone who speaks, but the technician of the Rome José Mourinho which, despite the victory over the Cremonese, bursts against the ground of the Olimpico. And before him he had also complained Maurizio Sarri, the Lazio coach. The two just can’t conceive that the pitch could be in these crumbling conditions after just a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes of play. A controversy that has been going on for a year.
The two have always complained, ever since they landed in the capital. No one like the two of them. And it is normal that this is the case, considering that it is Mourinhois Sarri come from the Premier and there such fields or “of potatoes”As the Special One defined them, they just don’t exist. They do not see each other. And in England they play more than we do, but their fields are perfect.
