After the match, Muriqi dismissed the rumours that he was looking to return to Fenerbahce in the summer when speaking to the media (via La Lazio Siamo Noi).

I’ve been unlucky with Lazio between Covid-19, injuries. I also missed the pre-season training camp in Austria. I need to learn the Italian language, it’s right to do so.

I also need to adapt to the team. I have a five-year contract with Lazio. I’m happy in Rome!
