Simone Inzaghi explains why ‘we saw the Lazio that we knew before’ in a 5-1 win at Verona and they ‘deserve more than to finish fourth.’
The Biancocelesti caught Atalanta in third place and put Ciro Immobile well clear at the top of the Capocannoniere charts with a hat-trick in the 5-1 victory away to Verona.
“We saw the Lazio that we knew before, because we had options to come off the bench and rotate the squad, which we didn’t have before,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.
“We don’t want to finish fourth, as the team deserves more for all they’ve achieved this season. We have records to beat, for Immobile, for Luis Alberto’s assists, but they know that there’s no way they could target these personal objectives without their teammates.
“The last four years have been so special, I don’t want to just make it seem like this season was different. We won the Italian Super Cup, set a new record for points and qualified for the Champions League.
“These lads are special.”
