Milinkovic: 'Why not the Scudetto?'

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic insists Lazio’s target is a top four finish, but after beating Inter to go into second place, “why not go for the Scudetto?”

Ashley Young had given the visitors a surprise lead on the stroke of half-time, but a Ciro Immobile penalty and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic finish turned it around.

This extends the Aquile’s unbeaten run to a club record 19 rounds, stretching back to the 1-0 defeat at Inter in September, and they leapfrog into second place, just one point off leaders Juventus.

“I scored, but the whole team got this victory. It’s true what we said a few days ago, we are a family and we want to continue like this,” Milinkovic-Savic told Sky Sport Italia.

“Inter didn’t play a great first half and we created more chances, but they scored. So we went into the dressing room, said this has to be our game and we came back out with the same attitude, as if it was 0-0.

“What we feel obliged to achieve is a Champions League place, but if we are up there towards the end, then why not go for the Scudetto?

“Inter won’t give up because we won tonight, we won’t give up no matter what happens in future, then we’ll just see how things pan out.”
