Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi spoke to gathered reporters in a press conference yesterday, after the Biancocelesti’s 2-1 Coppa Italia win over Parma. His words were collected by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

The guys had a good match. Correa came back into the squad to regain his fitness. I thought it was right to keep Muriqi on the pitch. Lulic is back and he’s also finding his form.

His return and the fact that we’ve made it through the rounds is the best news of the evening. We’ve been in the quarter-finals for five years and we’ll play our best in Bergamo.

He touched on this month’s transfer market and if any reinforcements will arrive.

We’re evaluating what to do. It’s a shame we lost Luiz Felipe for a long time. We have problems with rotation and together with the club we are looking at profiles of defenders.

At the moment Vavro is training well and has been reintegrated. It’s not easy to find good players in the January market, but if the opportunity arises, we’ll be ready.

Finally, Inzaghi spoke about the role of Brazilian forward Andreas Pereira.

He has to improve his condition and he played as a mezzala today but he can play that role. He worked hard tonight.

I had to take him off in the second half because I wanted more physical strength in midfield, choosing to put Parolo back on.
