Sarri is eager to continue his project with Lazio after winning Monza

With a 2-0 victory over Monza, Lazio extended their stay in Serie A's second place. Mauricio Sarri praised his side while declaring he wants to commit his future to the club.

Lazio recorded a sixth successive clean sheet against Monza after goals from Pedro and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic sealed Maurizio Sarri's side a 2-0 victory. With two years remaining on his contract, the 64-year-old coach confirmed he wants to continue his project with Biancocelesti.

"I have two more years, and I'm fine at Lazio,"

he said during his post-match press conference. "

They made me feel important.

"If something sensational doesn't happen, I want to continue with Lazio and finish with this team. It's a club that gets inside you. I like this Lazio a lot.

"I had asked for maturity in not repeating the mistakes of the past. And the signs of maturity are coming, we played a serious game against a difficult team to face.

"We have quality, technique, breadth. Humility was needed, and we faced [Monza] in the right way."

With his 56th-minute free-kick goal, Milinkovic-Savic became Lazio's leading foreign scorer with 65 goals. The Serbian midfielder will be out of contract in June 2024, however, he refused to discuss his future after the game.

"These are three enormous points for us, as we are still in second place for a while longer,"

he told



"Finally, I managed to score and I really missed that feeling.

"There has been a lot of criticism and negative words. I tell you the truth, I did not accept them well, they knocked me down. I didn't think I deserved them after everything I've done over the years for this club.

"If I read too much, I hurt myself, but I accepted them, I worked and today finally came what I was waiting for and what everyone was waiting for.

"I am concentrated on the pitch, helping the team and achieving our objectives for the season. I don't want to talk about the contract renewal, we'll see at the end of the season."
