Lazio defender Patric was overjoyed with the team’s 3-1 win over Inter last night.
Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 28-year-old Spanish defender first commented on the match against the Nerazzurri.
Congratulations to the team, this is a team of men because it was not easy to react after a defeat and a goal at the beginning.
We have to believe until the end, that we are strong and we can do great things.
However, not only against Roma and Inter, but also on pitches against Bologna, we must always have our heads and create a winning mentality, remaining humble.
It’s not by chance that we don’t fail these appointments. It wasn’t easy in Bologna for what we prepared, we hadn’t rested well, the pitch… Bologna remains unforgivable.
We rest now and move forward.
Patric spoke about his personal evolution with Lazio over the years and how he feels now.
In life it’s enough to want everything, I never thought I would play in the centre. Everything is possible, it’s not by chance.
It takes strength to react and show, everyone goes through bad times. I’m happy with the moment I’m living, I feel good.
The Lazio defender spoke about the performance in the match and Inter’s intimidating defence.
They are very good at the back, structured. I believed in it and managed to make the corner kick for the equaliser.
The 28-year-old Spanish defender discussed his personal relationship with coach Maurizio Sarri.
Sarri’s trust is very important, he immediately made me understand that he was on my side, I went through a strange personal situation, but now I’m happy.
I prefer my teammates to be available. Luiz Felipe was hurt by the red card. He, Correa and I are brotherly friends.
I think they both made mistakes, because Luiz should have understood that Tucu was tense at that moment.
But these are things on the pitch and I find the red card harsh. Hopefully he won’t be out for long.
The 28-year-old Patric has impressed Sarri since his arrival in Rome earlier this year, with the Spaniard being applauded for his tactical flexibility and high work rate.
