Inzaghi: "It Was Very Emotional, Five Very Intense Minutes, I Was Very Happy To See My Fans, I Thanked Them And At The Whistle I Went Professional, Tried To Give 100% For My Team."

Inter Milan coach, Simone Inzaghi received a warm and grateful welcome from Lazio fans on his first visit to the Olimpico this time against the Italian capital team on Saturday (16/10).

Simone Inzaghi is back at the Stadio Olimpico for the first time as an opponent after his first career with Lazio as a striker and then as a coach who won several trophies with them.

He left the Biancoceleste after his contract expired last summer and prefers his ambition to coach Inter Milan. Ultras largely blamed president Claudio Lotito for the departure of the 45-year-old coach and he as he had promised walked to stand under the Curva Nord before the game started.

As reported by Football-Italia, he waved his hand and looked touched as fans held up a banner with the caption: “22 years in our colors cannot be forgotten. Thank you, Simone."

The fans also shouted his name and at that moment a club fight was played and the Olympian eagle flew around the arena. However, his first visit ended bitterly for Simone as his team lost 3-1 to the hosts despite taking the lead through Ivan Perisic's penalty.

The match started with no tension after the 45-year-old coach received a warm welcome from the Biancoceleste fans.

"It was very emotional, five very intense minutes, I was very happy to see my fans, I thanked them and at the whistle, I went professional, tried to give 100 percent for my team."
