Iachini: “Lazio play entertaining football, they can annoy the top clubs”
Lazio have resumed their positive journey that started after two losses (to Napoli and Juventus) but was then interrupted in the Derby: a 3-1 loss to Roma did not sit well, especially a 4-1 sequential defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League. The victory was found against Fiorentina as they won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Ciro Immobile.
Italian manager Giuseppe Iachini – whose last job was with Sassuolo last year (has coached Udinese, Palermo, Siena, Sampdoria, Brescia, Chievo, Piacenza, Vicenza, and Cesena in the past) – in an interview with Tuttosport, stated his thoughts about the championship hierarchies: “Juventus makes a championship unlike any others but I see Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli right behind them. A step below the Neapolitan side is a fight between Inter, Roma, and Milan. Finally, not far from the three competitors for the Champions League spot are Lazio, Sampdoria, and Fiorentina. All three can bother the so-called greats and play entertaining football.”
