Hernanes still has 'huge Lazio respect'

Inter playmaker Hernanes has revealed how difficult it was for him to face his former team on Saturday.

The Brazil international played for the Nerazzurri against Lazio at the weekend, just three months after leaving the capital for San Siro.

“I still have a huge amount of respect for Lazio,” he told “It’s only been a few months since I left.

“Despite the situation [at the weekend], I tried to concentrate on the game as if we were facing any other opponent.

“At times I have watched my former teammates, and some thoughts went through my head.

“But I was completely focused on the game because it was important that we won.”
