Lazio managed to get a much-needed victory against Sassuolo in the Italian Serie A just before the international break. This second successive victory in the league was important for the club after having suffered back-to-back 1-0 defeats in the previous two matches. The club will come back into the league campaign after the international break with a lot of confidence according to manager Stefano Pioli. The former Fiorentina defender assumed the role as the head coach of Lazio in 2014. He replaced Vladimír Petkovic, who was sacked after a string of poor results.

Lazio not only put behind the disappointing opening day defeat against AC Milan but they also got their first win of the season against Cesena during the weekend. The 3-0 victory sees Lazio up and running in Italian Serie A for the season. Speaking after the match, new Lazio manager Stefano Pioli says that the entire team at the club are committed towards improving the results in order to satisfy the fans. Lazio fans are known as one of the most demanding especially due to the intense rivalry with Roma. The fact that Roma have been doing well in the league in the last 12 months has only intensified the need for Lazio to do well.

Senad Lulic doesn’t believe in too much of talking. He is of the opinion that it’s on the ground where the real competitiveness should be shown. There is no point talking about it prior to the matches.

Italian outfit Lazio have revealed that they will not consider selling striker Miroslav Klose at any price in this transfer window. The German international is set to become hot property in world football, as he could be available for a nominal transfer fee. At 36 years of age, he does not have a long time left in football. However, he showed at the World Cup 2014 that he has not lost none of his predatory instincts. Klose became the record goal scorer at World Cup finals with 16 goals to his name. He went past the 14 goal tally of former Brazilian striker Ronaldo.
