PRESSER: Inzaghi speaks ahead of Juventus vs Lazio
Here is the full Press Conference in English, given by manager Simone Inzaghi this morning at 9:00, a day before Juventus vs Lazio.
Simone Inzaghi talks about Juventus: “Tomorrow we have a wonderful game to play, we must learn from our mistakes on Saturday, we have races like this in our DNA.”
Simone Inzaghi talks about Napoli: “If we had finished the first half against Napoli still in the lead, the match could have been very different, we would not have dropped focus and there would not be so much tension.”
Simone Inzaghi talks about moving forward: “If we move on, all in the same direction, we can take away great satisfaction from this season and whatever the future holds.
We have trained well throughout the week and we are ready for Juventus. It will be an extraordinary match against an opponent who has won the Scudetto for so long. Last year against Juventus, we played great matches, and we hope that tomorrow the final result will be on our side. Tomorrow’s race will depend solely on us – I’m confident”.
Simone Inzaghi talks about formation and tactics: “Last year we played well against Juventus with 3-5-2, we analyzed our mistakes, on Saturday we played a good half hour against Napoli. I can change the formation, Milinkovic is an offensive player, there are tactical corrections, I always decide with my head and I hope that the team can give emotion, joy, lots of goals and even more victories.”
Simone Inzaghi talks about Lucas Leiva and Lulic: “Tomorrow Lulic and Lucas Leiva will return to the starting XI, we will need all of our players. I have a formation in mind, but I will only tell the team about it tomorrow morning.”
Simone Inzaghi talks about Cristiano Ronaldo: “Cristiano has been specifically observed, but Juventus are made up of many other players of the highest quality, this year they are even better than in previous years.”
Simone Inzaghi talks about Berisha and Luiz Felipe: “Berisha had a problem in Auronzo and also in Marienfeld, we hope to recover both him and Luiz Felipe soon.”
Simone Inzaghi talks about the phone call with Claudio Lotito: “The phone call between myself and the President is on the agenda right now – I demand so much of myself, but also of the players and the company. The important thing that it is for the overall good of the club; there is a great relationship between me and the players, the staff, and Claudio Lotito. I heard President Lotito in the video yesterday, we laughed about the incident, we are all calm but we regret the defeat against Napoli.”
