Mamma mia...Diakite is a lot of things. He is kind of charming. He has kind of a Lazioheart. He is maybe the strongest player in the league.
But that does not make him a good CD. MY GOD, look at his positionalplay. It is the worst I've seen since the days of Stendardo, but Stendardo can make a glidetackle while Diakites favorite move is a more brutal variant of an american football tackle.
Please, we need a leader in the defence, not a MMA-fighter on steroids...
Therefore, Siviglia is the best option we have today. It is a tragical thing to say, but it is the truth. Diakite has a loooooot of games left until he is good enough to play at this level, and even more games until he can become a leader of a defensiveline.
Cribari on the otherhand...No.
Radu has shown improvement this season and my opinion is that Radu-Siviglia should play.
Don't blame Ballardini.
Blame Lotito, this is his mess.
Ieri, oggi e domani...SEMPRE FORZA LAZIO!
