Ciro Immobile thinks when it’s time to kill games off, Lazio are faced with a psychological problem.
won the battle againstGenoa
with a 4-3 result; however, they endured more suffering when the Grifone climbed from 4-1 to 4-3 in the final minutes of the game.
It’s the second time we drop, we could have compromised a perfect performance, we must improve under this point of view,”
It’s not a physical problem because you see the lads continue to run and sprint at the end of games, it’s a psychological issue. We shouldn’t have conceded the penalty and the third goal,”
The Lazio striker has leveled with Silvio Piola in the number of goals scored for the Biancocelesti.
“I’m up there, Piola made the history of this club, scoring so many goals. It’s an honour to reach him and to be linked with the best strikers of this club. I’m proud of it.”
When asked whether he was worried about missing the penalty, as he did the last one against Benevento, Immobile admitted:
“Yes, a little bit, it’s normal after that you make a mistake.”
“It was important to find the net, we had to score and double the lead.”
About the reason behind Luis Alberto laughing before Immobile stood for the spot-kick, he said:
“He told me that we are not doing what we used to do last season, which is: he delivers the assist and I score.
“When the right moment comes, something happens, all the time. I could have scored today, making the most of his assist, but we had the penalty instead. At least I made an assist for him."
