Lazio striker Ciro Immobile highlighted the importance of tonight’s match against AC Milan earlier this evening.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Lazio Style Channel (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 31-year-old Italian striker first spoke about how it felt working with coach Simone Inzaghi whilst the 45-year-old was forced to self-isolate at home.

The coach is busier than ever, he and his family haven’t had the best time of it but we’ve been there for them.

The technology has allowed us to work together with him anyway, having him on the pitch is different though. In his absence the staff have done an exceptional job.

Immobile then looked ahead to tonight’s clash.

Today’s game represents for us the last chance to stay in the top four race and we know we can’t miss it. This must give us extra motivation, as well as the five goals we conceded in Naples.

Finally, the Lazio star discussed his recent injury and return.

It seems that the tendon problems are over, I was convinced that once I improved my condition, I would be able to use both legs well again. I wanted to come back and score goals and help the team.
