Lazio manager Maurizio Sarri does not mince words when it comes to pre-match interviews.

The former Chelsea boss was interviewed by Sky Sport minutes away from kick-off to tonight’s Lazio-Venezia fixture.

When asked whether he was already preparing for the derby on Sunday, Sarri replied, “I couldn’t care less about the derby right now.”

“Tonight we have to face Venezia, that’s it,” he continued. “I don’t think it would do us any good to think about Roma tonight.”

Roma and Lazio will square off on March 20th in a heated derby that could prove crucial for both teams chasing top four as the campaign winds down.
