Inter Striker Correa Confirms No Hard Feelings With Lazio Defender Luiz Felipe

By Apollo Heyes -

Inter striker Joaquin Correa has confirmed that he and Lazio defender Luiz Felipe are still on good terms after their incident this season.

Speaking in an interview with Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Argentinian striker first commented on his strong record of five goals in nine matches against AC Milan.

They were all important goals, but I want to score more. 

I am very attached to the goal scored in the 2019 Coppa Italia semi-final where we passed to the final, also because in the end we brought home the trophy.

The Inter striker commented on the incident that saw Luiz Felipe sent off in the match against Lazio earlier this season.

In the end I was the bad guy for the nervous reaction! It wasn’t the right moment, but we made up immediately and he remains a brother. 

But he wasn’t crying on the pitch because of me, he was crying because of the sending off.

Finally, Correa spoke about his relationship and thoughts on coach Simone Inzaghi.

I think Inzaghi’s changed, he’s always calm and determined. He’s very good at managing with intelligence, a big brother who makes his players love him. 

And his staff also work very well, that’s why I think things will go well for us, we just need to be patient. 

At Roma he prepared the derbies by giving us peace of mind, leaving us free, without putting too much pressure on us. And in this way he gave us an extra boost, in fact we won many of them.

The 27-year-old Correa left Lazio to join Inter in this summer’s transfer window, being reunited with coach Simone Inzaghi.

The Argentinian forward has had a decent start to live in the Lombardy capital, netting four goals in seven Serie A appearances so far this season.

Inzaghi’s Inter currently sit third in the Serie A table after 11 games, with 24 points, seven behind tied league leaders AC Milan and Napoli.
