Lichtsteiner: 'Remarkable win in Rome'

Stephan Lichtsteiner concedes it’s “remarkable” for Juventus to beat Lazio 4-0 in their own back yard.

Although the Stadio Olimpico in Rome was for the purposes of the Italian Super Cup seen as a ‘neutral’ venue, it is also where the Biancocelesti play their home games.

“It’s a great night for Juventus, as to win 4-0 in their home is remarkable,” he told Rai Sport.

Lichtsteiner was actively involved in three of the four goals, but jeered by his former fans when substituted. He responded by bowing theatrically.

“I had three splendid years at Lazio, we won two trophies and now I am a Juventino.”

Despite a splendid performance on the night, the Swiss international was regularly told off from the touchline.

“Antonio Conte has always shouted at me! I need a Coach who shouts and always demands more, as it brings the best out of me.”
