Speaking to Sky Sport after his Lazio side’s elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich, Simone Inzaghi insisted that he was nonetheless proud of what his team had achieved to reach this stage of the competition.
The Biancoceleste manager praised his side’s improved performance with respect to the first leg, and pointed out that Lazio will now turn their attention towards qualifying for next year’s edition.
“At 0-0 we had a few good opportunities, then we conceded a penalty and for the second goal it was a corner for us, but an offside call went against us. We were unhappy with the 4-1 result in the away leg, we could have done better there. Today, on the other hand, we played well.”
“We know that there are matches which are unplayable, one of those is against Bayern. Our objective was to get out of the group and we’re happy to have done that while remaining unbeaten. We could have done better in the first leg against Bayern, but we remain very proud of ourselves.”
“Now, we have to get to work. Bayern are the at the top of the continent, at a monstruous level. We’ll have to progress step by step. We’ve managed a first one, the second will be to manage to fight for a spot in the Champions League next year – there are 11 games left, we’ll fight for it.”
