Inzaghi: 'Nobody was bored'

Simone Inzaghi complained about the referee again after Lazio fought back for a 3-3 draw with Atalanta. “I don’t think anyone was bored tonight.”

The hosts had gone 2-0 up, but Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s brace put it on 2-2 by half-time, then a Josip Ilicic penalty was cancelled out by Luis Alberto’s well-worked team goal.

“It was a good response in a very difficult situation. I knew we could suffer here, but we recovered from a quick one-two that would’ve sent anyone to the mat,” the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

“I don’t think anyone was bored tonight. I’ve been saying for a while that Milinkovic-Savic has immense quality for a 22-year-old and on top of that he works so hard. He can become even stronger.

“Atalanta impressed me the most in terms of tempo this season. They are a few points behind, mainly due to the added Europa League commitments, but they are doing very well this season too.

“I am glad that tonight we proved we never give up and want to stay close to the leading pack.”

Inzaghi raged against the referees and VAR in Monday’s 3-1 defeat to Torino and was sent off for dissent tonight by Massimiliano Irrati.

“I didn’t say anything, I just raised my hand on the Hans Hateboer foul and the referee sent me off. I have behaved impeccably on the touchline this season, so evidently Irrati had it in for me.”
