Lazio have played some excellent games - Simone Inzaghi

Fri 15 October 2021 | 16:00

Inter have to face Lazio tomorrow in Rome, a match that is very special for Simone Inzaghi as he has been in charge of the Biancocelesti for the last five years.

“We will try to be ready, unfortunately we were few here, but they worked in the best possible way. The European national players have returned with some minor problems. We are waiting for the South Americans.”

Inzaghi was asked what has changed in Lazio since his separation.

“I think Lazio have played some excellent games,”

he said.

“They are a very well-built team, a new coach has arrived and he’s very good at organising the teams.

“They are playing excellent games, but they lost the last one and therefore they will be angry and will want to play well.”

Inzaghi is unsure whether he will have any of the South Americans and has already left out the Chileans.

“It happened already against Samp, but we played on Sunday,”

he said.

“This time it’s special. Sanchez and Vidal will not come to Rome, they will stay in Milan.

“They will be useful for Tuesday, as well as [Stefano] Sensi, who has trained fairly well over the last few days.

“He still can’t kick with the right due to the sprain, but we hope to recover him for Tuesday.”

La Liga have decided to move the games due to the late return of players from international duties.

“I will talk to the South Americans, and we will see how they are,”

Inzaghi said.

“In La Liga they have done well to postpone the games, but it’s a matter that had to be addressed before.

“We know that we have other alternatives in those roles. I will have to evaluate how the South Americans arrive in Rome.”

Inzaghi has been

Lazio

coach for 5 years and knows very well what to expect from the opponent.

We need to be clean, very good technically,”

he said. “

We know that Lazio will be pressing hard, we have done very well some games, and less in others

.

“We will have to be good in both phases of the game.”

Does Inzaghi expect to be greeted by fans when he returns to his former home?

It’s not a match like the others, for me it’s a return to my home for 22 years,”

he continued. “

It will be a great thrill to see the lads who have always given everything for me and the people behind the scenes who were always special

.

“In addition, seeing the Lazio fans, who have been very important for me. We have celebrated and suffered together in these years, reaching great targets that haven’t been achieved for a long time.

“I know there will be boos and applause, but it’s part of the job. I will accept them, they know that I have always given everything.”

Inter also face FC Sheriff Tiraspol in Giuseppe Meazza on Tuesday.

It’s certainly an important week,”

he said.

“We will have to take one game at a time. Tomorrow will be very difficult and we must do our best, then we will have the Champions League and Jvuentus

.

“They will all be very difficult.”

Calhanoglu is uncertain for the match, but Inzaghi believes he could play a key role.

I’m very happy Calhanoglu has arrived, he’s an integral part of the project,”

Inzaghi added. “

He never backs down. He received a bad hit against Latvia and did everything to be available

.

“I don’t know if he will start or enter off the bench. I’m very happy with him, just like his teammates are.”

Inzaghi said that he lives well in Milan and said that the fans welcomed him in a wonderful way.

“I immediately settled in,”

he added.

“These fans are similar to those of Lazio and they welcomed me like I never expected, from day one.

“They have always been fantastic with me and the team, and every time we travel, they are so many, and they make you feel an incredible warmth.”
