The Spaniard scored the 1-1 penalty, shortly after being the protagonist of a yellow card that leaves little doubt
Don’t call them friendly. Or, at least, not ahead of Luis Alberto. The Spaniard closes the retreat from top scorer of Lazio, waiting for the return of Ciro Immobile. But, above all, he closes his thirteen days in Auronzo putting any stomach ache behind him and proving to be a leader of this team. He took the Lazio on the shoulders, the same Sarri seems to have given him a new responsibility, different from the one under management Inzaghi.
It was precisely iI Magician, in fact, the player called into question by Sarri to empower the confused comrades in the middle of the field. And Luis Alberto, in response, showed a performance proving character to sell, perhaps too much for a friendly. Yes, because the Spaniard did not only show great inspiration in front of the door with his seven goals and the well-known qualities of a man assists. Luis Alberto he played every game with the same desire as a young man who has to earn his place in the team. He did not spare himself in the defensive phase and showed a determination that will surely have pleased him Maurizio Sarri. At times, perhaps, too much, as happened around the thirtieth minute of the game this afternoon.
Result still at 0-0, Lazio awkward and a bit ‘on the legs: the tiredness of the eighteenth day of retreat is felt. How does the voice of Maurizio Sarri off the bench, ready to call his own. “We are making an incredible mess”Says the Commander in the middle of the field. It asks for the maximum commitment, the maximum desire to win. AND Luis Alberto takes him at his word: on 31 ‘the Padova midfielder Hraiech commits the second foul in a few minutes on the Spaniard. That doesn’t take it well at all and reacts by pushing the opponent to the ground. The referee draws the yellow, had it been an official match the color of the card would probably have been dangerously tending to dark orange, almost red. A lightness to be avoided without any doubt, but also the demonstration of healthy positive nervousness, symbol of the desire of the Spaniard. Other than wishes to farewell: Luis Alberto is ready to take Lazio back on his shoulders.
