The Head Coach Simone Inzaghi held a press conference on the eve of Lazio's TIM Cup home match against Cittadella.
“We must transform the disappointment of the injustice that we suffered into ferocity. I talked a lot to the team yesterday, now we have to look forward. What happened was out of this world, but I’m proud of how the players reacted. From today, I won’t talk about these wrongs anymore and I’ll only think about putting the best team out like I have been, despite our wrongs. However, those in charge will make themselves heard.
I expected a better performance against the Granata, but they’re a good team. We’re doing well, despite everything and everyone. It’s thanks to the work we’ve done in the last few months and the support of the fans, who have always been close to us. We’re on the right track to do well. We’re a tight-knit unit and we can fight against everything and everyone.
Immobile had a good game on Monday. He hit the post and was close to scoring. He had to be more careful with Burdisso, but I’ll say that at most, he deserved a warning, like Burdisso. However, I remain confident because I know that Ciro is fine.
The game against Cittadella is a trap. They’re a well-organized team, who mustn’t be underestimated. They’re doing well in Serie B and they also beat Palermo, so we must play with intensity. I have to put out our best team.
We still have to assess how the players recovered after Monday’s game. Luis Alberto and Felipe Anderson took some knocks, which must be evaluated. Immobile will play as he’s banned in the League”.
