Former Lazio midfielder Giancarlo Camolese discussed Simone Inzaghi’s work with the Biancocelesti over the last few years, Ecuadorian striker Felipe Caicedo and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster TMW Radio yesterday.
“Doing something new every now and then is important, sometimes they are small changes, but they lead to important results. Lazio have a good squad, who never give up, and the players are all involved in the project.
“This means that Inzaghi’s staff are working very well, winning or losing always depends on a lot of things.”
The 59-year-old Italian commented on the recent performances of 32-year-old Ecuadorian forward Felipe Caicedo, who has scored two goals in the dying minutes of extra time this season, against Torino and Juventus.
“Lazio shows that players must be signed, yes, but also know how to wait. Luis Alberto is another one, exceptional, imaginative, he has rare skills.
“And Lazio knew how to wait for him, this is a merit that must be given to the whole environment.”
Finally, Camolese touched on the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and how that affects teams this season.
“Yes, and I’d also say that we are watching another type of football, you prepare for something all week, and then maybe the day before you have some positive players that can’t play.
“Then there’s the public, who make an impact, once upon a time I’d say that they were the players on a Thursday.”
Lazio are currently 9th in Serie A after seven games, sitting three points behind rivals Roma, who are in fourth place.
The Biancocelesti’s next game is against newly promoted Crotone on the 21st November, after the international break, before they face Russian side Zenit in the return leg of the Champions League group stage.
In Europe, Simone Inzaghi’s side are second in Group F after three games, sitting one point behind leaders Borussia Dortmund and one point ahead of third place Club Brugge.
