Inzaghi: ‘Lazio never stopped believing’

Simone Inzaghi said Lazio ‘never stopped believing’ after an astonishing comeback from 3-2 down at the 94th minute to beat Torino 4-3 after an exhausting week.

The result came after they travelled to Club Brugge for a 1-1 Europa League draw without 12 first team players, some of whom ended up testing ‘false positive’ for COVID-19, and with others not ready to start this afternoon in Turin either.

“I think this is an extremely important victory and a difficult one against a team that was well-organised,” the coach told DAZN.

“We conceded the goal for 3-2 in a bit of a strange situation, but we never stopped believing. In the first half, we had the right approach, even if we weren’t always efficient enough with our finishing.

“To a degree, we made life difficult for ourselves with some errors on set plays and a throw-in. Every game has its hidden dangers.”

When Felipe Caicedo scored the winner at the 98th minute, even Inzaghi ran onto the pitch to join the wild celebrations.

“I couldn’t miss out on that hug with my lads, especially after the week we’ve had. We were missing so many players, but this squad proved it has values at its core.

“It has been a difficult week for us and we would prefer to work in different circumstances, but there’s not much we can do about it. We had to adapt.”
