S.Inzaghi: ‘Lazio deserved to win, Caicedo…’

Simone Inzaghi believes Lazio deserved to win against Parma and insists Felipe Caicedo is not leaving in January.

“We had the right approach to the game, I think we only ran one risk in the first half, but otherwise fully deserved to win. In fact, we should’ve opened the scoring earlier.

“It’s a win that can help boost our confidence and self-esteem,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

The transfer rumours continue to circulate around Felipe Caicedo, although Lazio insist the Ecuadorian striker is staying.

“Caicedo is a very important player for us, his teammates all love him, we are happy with what he’s doing and want him to remain with us. We have a director of sport who deals with the transfer market, I just want us to play with a complete squad at our disposal, that is all.”

Lazio needed this run of results, as they had fallen quite far behind in the Serie A standings.

“We had a very tough Champions League group, even without the COVID issues, so we knew that a few points were going to be dropped during that period. I do think we deserved more from recent games, most notably against Milan and Genoa.

“The team is going strong now, though, and the suggestion we took our foot off the gas or weren’t fully focused is not true.”
