Luis Alberto: 'More freedom with Milan'

Luis Alberto describes how his position changes without Ciro Immobile in the side, as Lazio adapt to suspension in order to take on Milan. ‘I have more freedom.’

“We are focused only on Milan today and in getting the three points we need to stay close to Juventus at the top of the table,” the midfielder told Lazio Style Channel.

Immobile and Felipe Caicedo are both suspended, so Joaquin Correa becomes the lone centre-forward, with Luis Alberto in a trequartista role.

“Without Immobile, I am pushing a good 20 metres further up the field and have more freedom to move around. The important thing is that I help the team to get the victory and play good football.”

This is played behind closed doors, but around 200 Lazio fans still accompanied the team bus to the Stadio Olimpico on their mopeds, with flags and scarves flying.

“The fans are our 12th man and we feel their presence, even if they are not physically inside the stadium.”
