Hernanes rallies Lazio

Hernanes has issued a rallying cry to his Lazio teammates in a bid to qualify for next year's Champions League.

Lazio currently occupy the fourth and final Champions League spot, but Roma, Juventus and Udinese are breathing down their necks.

Speaking at an awards ceremony, Hernanes said: "We want fourth place. If we want to finish on a high we have to win.

"Right now we have very difficult games like that against Inter away from home and Juventus.

"Moreover we are still coming off a game against Napoli in which we were unlucky and absolutely didn't deserve to lose.

"The fixture list doesn't help us seeing that we'll play only two of our last six games at the Olimpico."
