Sarri: 'Empoli blackout'

Maurizio Sarri concedes Empoli “paid dearly for a blackout” in their 4-0 home defeat to Cagliari.

The result was already sealed before half-time, as the hosts conceded four goals in 13 minutes.

“We paid dearly for a blackout. After the opening goal we were unable to play, to react, and then it becomes very difficult to get your head back in the game after going 4-0 down,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“Was it a physical or psychological issue? It’s very difficult to divide the two. We certainly emerged from Monday’s game at Genoa with some problems and I noticed it in training too.

“We should’ve clung to the match for longer, but we physically were not 100 per cent and it showed.”
