On Sunday, Inter defender Stefan de Vrij will return to the Stadio Olimpico to play against Lazio; a place he called home for four seasons before making the switch to the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2018. A few days before the clash, the Dutch defender expressed himself on both the difficult encounter and his experience in the Capital in an interview with Serie A’s YouTube channel.

“My time at Lazio is unforgettable. I had a great time there and I will always remember it. We won beautiful games like the Supercoppa Italiana and the two Coppa Italia’s. And we always placed very high in the rankings. It was a good time, all in all.”

“This season, it’s a great time for Lazio, for Juventus and for us, as we are all there at the top of the table. If we all keep winning, the race for the Scudetto will be exciting.”

“I’m not surprised that Lazio is doing so well, Simone Inzaghi is very strong in creating team spirit. They never give up and
have won many matches in the final minutes, proving their character.”
