Ex-Midfielder Romulo: “The Six Months With Lazio Were the Best of My Career”

Former Lazio midfielder and free agent Romulo discussed his time with the Biancocelesti and his dreams of returning in an interview with Italian media outlet Ilposticipo.it earlier today.

I had the best six months of my career. In Rome I found a family, I still have a very close relationship with the Lazio players.

I got on very well with Inzaghi, he’s a great coach. He studies opponents a lot and he has staff made up of brothers who work and share the same way of thinking.

I think Inzaghi will grow a lot, he’s only at the beginning of his career even though he’s already won a lot. The coach has given Lazio a very strong identity.

I hope he will become one of the best coaches in Europe and one day maybe he will be the coach of the Italian national team.

The 33-year-old Brazilian, who spent last season with recently demoted Brescia, then moved onto discussing the Derby della Capitale against Roma.

The hottest and most electrifying derby is the one in Rome because the whole city stops and everyone talks only about that match.

Even if one of the two teams are not in a good position in the table, it is enough to win the derby to give a meaning to the season.

When I was there, Lazio won the derby 3-0, it was beautiful, the stadium was packed, it was an unforgettable feeling.

Finally, Romulo spoke about some of his dreams and hopes for the future of his career.

When I missed the opportunity to play in the 2014 World Cup with Italy, I was disappointed. Honoring the Azzurri shirt and playing in the country where I was born was no small thing.

Because of an injury I was forced to decline the call-up, it was difficult to accept.

I’d like to be called up again to wear the Italy shirt. Then it would be nice to go back to Rome and play for Lazio again.

The 33-year-old Romulo made 22 appearances across all competitions last season for Brescia, for a total of 1725 minutes. In that time, he scored one goal and provided three assists.

In his six months with the Biancocelesti in the 2018/19 season, Romulo made 13 appearances, provided one assist and helped the side win the Coppa Italia.
