Vedat Muriqi has praised new Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri, claiming that he is in the Top 10 for the best coaches in the world.
The 27-year-old Kosovo international struggled in his first season with the Aquile under previous tactician Simone Inzaghi but he has approved of the philosophy implemented by his successor.
“I work with a coach which is among 10 of the best in the world,” Muriqi said in his press conference.
“He does not like to play with long balls, with him it is forbidden to play with launching passes.”
Muriqi signed from Turkish giants Fenerbahce in September 2020 for €18.5 million but he only scored one goal in 27 matches throughout the 2020/21 Serie A season.
His scoring rate for his country is more impressive, having scored 15 goals in 30 matches for Kosovo since 2016, and he added to that tally on Thursday evening with the solitary goal in their victory against Georgia in their Group B World Cup qualifier.
