Correa: 'Inzaghi keeps us calm'

Joaquin Correa has claimed Lazio are prepared to “finish the League” and revealed how coach Simone Inzaghi keeps them “calm” during the emergency.

The Biancoceleste sit second, one point behind league leaders Juventus, as Serie A has been suspended due to the Coronavirus emergency affecting the whole world.

And the Argentine 25-year-old has admitted that it will be a challenge to resume play after being still for two months and took us through a day of his life in self-isolation.

“It’s strange to stop for almost two months, it will be hard for everyone,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “It’s as if we start a new season, but we want to do well.

“My parents and my girlfriend are far away, it’s bad, they’re worried too. My days are all the same.

“I get up early, I organise things at home, I train three or four times a day. In the morning I do some work on the treadmill and I try to eat differently every day.

“In the afternoon, I do some gym sessions and I read a little, I play some PlayStation and I watch some movies.”

Constant contact with his teammates every day and messages from coach Inzaghi help the Lazio players stay focused to end the campaign in the best possible way in an event of a return.

“We always keep in touch, and the coach calms us down,” he added. “Every now and then he writes us to keep us calm. Even if we are far away, we try to stay close.

“The strength of the group has made the difference, now we have to concentrate, train well and start all over again.

“We want to finish the League and have fun with the fans who are always following us.”
