Mauri: Lazio 'charged' for final

Lazio captain Stefano Mauri has admitted that he is looking forward to an all-Roman Coppa Italia final.

The Biancocelesti will face Roma for the cup on May 26, and the attacker has hit back at Daniele De Rossi, after his Giallorossi counterpart claimed he wanted to face a 'stronger team' than Lazio in the final.

“I think Daniele has said those things to charge the environment,” he told Lazio Radio Style.

“But we don't need words, we are already charged.

“First though, we have to think about the League – there are still six games to go and we want to do well in them all.

“This year the fans have been really fantastic. We want to dedicate this cup run to them.”
