Federico Marchetti thanked his former Lazio understudy after lifting the Coppa Italia trophy.
“Juan Pablo Carrizo is with us and part of this triumph, even if he left to join Inter in January,” said the goalkeeper on RAI Sport.
It was no simple task to prepare for the biggest Rome derby in history, so Lazio went to a pre-match training camp in Norcia.
“There were many factors that could’ve troubled us this week, but we were able to isolate ourselves. This is a great group, we are all brothers here.
“It was tough after we scored, as we had to hold on under Roma’s pressure.”
