Lazio were stunned by Lecce in their Serie A opener, losing 2-1. Ciro Immobile scored his side’s only goal. The Italian centre-forward spoke to Sky Sports at the end of the game. Among the topics discussed was Roberto Mancini’s resignation as coach of the Azzurri. The Lazio captain expressed his surprise at the decision.
“I was surprised because we finished the Nations League and it seemed that another cycle with Mancini was beginning. Of course now it’s all starting again, but thanks to Mancini for what we’ve done. We made history, both positively and negatively. Now I’m ready to do well with Lazio and arrive at the appointment with the national team in the best possible way,” declared the 33-year-old.
