Lazio Defender Patric on Inzaghi: “The Work You Have Done for This Shirt is Truly Something Extraordinary”

The Simone Inzaghi era with Lazio came to an official end last week as the Italian manager elected not to stay on with the club. Inzaghi leaves Lazio with over 100 wins in all competitions coupled with the trio of trophies won.

Lazio defender Patric was among the talents that showed promise under Inzaghi. Patric totaled for 100+ appearances in all competitions under Inzaghi and helped lift the Coppa Italia trophy over the 2018-2019 campaign.

Patric joined his Lazio teammates in posting a farewell message to Inzaghi on social media. In a lengthy post via his official Instagram page, the Spanish defender signaled out Inzaghi’s grand success.

The bar is raised, people always expect more from you, as is only right, but the work you have done for this shirt is truly something extraordinary.

You said you didn’t sleep at night to take Lazio as high as possible and this has helped you win 3 trophies, set a record of victories and reach the goal of reaching the Champions League Round of 16 after 20 years.

I like people before I like coaches and players, and people make analyses in an objective way and this is mine… you deserve to go out with a round of applause because you are a true Lazio player and because you have shown day and night that you love Lazio! Good luck coach thanks for everything.

As Patric noted, Lazio secured a place in this past season’s UEFA Champions League knockout stage for the first time in decades. While Bayern Munich did eventually eliminate the Biancocelesti in the opening round of the knockout stage, the side proved plenty of doubters wrong as it finished second in its Champions League group.
