Lazio consider Pioli sacking

Lazio are reportedly considering sacking Coach Stefano Pioli, with Sunday night’s Milan game potentially crucial.

The Biancocelesti finished third last season, qualifying for the Champions League, as well as reaching the Coppa Italia final.

However, this season has been disappointing, with the Aquile eliminated from the Champions League by Bayern Leverkusen, as well as sitting eight in Serie A, 13 points from fifth-placed Inter.

These struggles were compounded last night when Czech side Sparta Prague thrashed Pioli’s men 3-0 at Stadio Olimpico, eliminating them from the Europa League.

Fans are protesting at the Formello training ground today, and according to LaLazioSiamoNoi, President Claudio Lotito is considering a change on the bench.

The patron is said to be meeting with Pioli today, and is considering replacing him with youth-team Coach Simone Inzaghi.

The website believes Sunday’s game could be Pioli’s last, as he’d likely be sacked if Lazio are defeated.
