Maurizio Sarri has taken the silence of his team at a meeting as a matching order, handing in his notice of resignation to Lazio’s management.


The Biancocelesti coach was left infuriated after the team’s horrid 2-1 loss to relegation candidates Udinese on Monday evening and had a tense meeting with the squad, where he demanded an explanation behind their drop in form.


Sarri allegedly asked the Lazio squad if they wanted him to stay in the dugout or leave, and nobody responded, prompting him to decide to call it quits after three years in the role.


According to reports from sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the Biancocelesti will now have to quickly find a replacement for the remaining 10 Serie A matches of the season, as well as their Coppa Italia semi-final clash with Juventus.

Sarri oversaw 137 matches at Lazio during his three years at the helm, picking up 65 wins, 30 draws and 42 losses.
