Lazio boss has talked about their performance against Sampdoria.


says that they deserved the victory against Sampdoria, and they have to focus on their Champions League fixture against Bayern Munich.

“This was a very, very complicated match. Sampdoria are in a good period of form, we controlled the first half and should’ve scored at least one more goal,”

the coach told

Sky Sport Italia.

“We did very well for an hour, then Samp came out and caused us problems. The team was focused in defense, we know this is an emergency situation where we have to grit our teeth, but considering the overall football, shots on goal and chances, I think we fully deserved the victory.”

And when asked about his bench Inzaghi added:

“The reserves as you put it are the ones who allowed us to get through to the Champions League Round of 16, which was not to be taken for granted at all, and continue to do well in Serie A. Since the lockdown last season, we’ve never been a full squad again. When we had the full team, we challenged for the Scudetto or put together six wins in a row.

“I have no complaints for the new players, we know that we have to introduce them gradually to the existing unit. We had two main aims this season, which were to get through to the last 16 of the Champions League and remain in the competition for next season, even though we’ve got some big clubs against us.”
