Sampdoria Midfielder Antonio Candreva Touches Upon His Time With Inzaghi at Lazio

Sampdoria midfielder Antonio Candreva remembered his goal against Inter under previous Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 34-year-old Italian midfielder looked back to the match between the Biancocelesti and Nerazzurri on 1st May 2016, when Inzaghi was the club’s interim coach.

I scored against Inter with Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio, who had just arrived on the bench.

He had a great career, but when he came to the Biancoceleste he changed the playstyle and that was the turning point.

Candreva did not play for Inzaghi’s Lazio for long, leaving in that summer’s transfer window in order to join Inter. The Italian midfielder scored from the penalty spot in that 2-0 win over the Nerazzurri in May 2016, with the other goal coming from fan favourite Miroslav Klose.

The Italian midfielder spent four years with Inter, but joined Sampdoria on loan last season and so was not part of the squad that won the Scudetto under coach Antonio Conte.

His move to Liguria was made permanent and Candreva is contracted to Sampdoria until 2024, which means his deal will expire when he’s 37 years old.
