Lazio managed to open the 2016-17 season in the best possible way after getting a victory against Atalanta.
There was a lot of pressure on the team to start the season well after having just experienced one of the poor campaigns in recent memory. Just when it seemed that the team was on the verge of regularly qualifying for the Champions League, they slipped back into the lower levels of the Italian Serie A table. Hopes of reviving the team has been placed upon Inzaghi and the manager did not disappoint after grabbing this rollercoaster victory
A 4-3 win on opening day does not give out a lot of positive vibes about the defence, but it was important three points for the team to begin with. It also gives them a lot of confidence going into the next game against champions Juventus. Inzaghi would have preferred to wait for a game against the champions, but this would be a great time to play against Massimiliano Allegri’s team since they are just recovering from the loss of midfielder Paul Pogba to Manchester United. Inzaghi claimed that his team was made to suffer in the win against Atalanta since the opposition were extremely good as well. Immobile was the start of the show with a first-half brace.

Felipe Anderson’s agent has denied that the Lazio player will be leaving the club in the summer.
There have been rumors that Felipe Anderson will be leaving the Italian club for Manchester United after the club has failed to qualify for the Europa League.
The Lazio director stated some time ago that he has turned down a €50m offer for the forward but did not tell from which club it was. There are media reports that Manchester United might be interested in boosting their attacking options especially now with Rooney playing in a central role in midfield. Indeed, this season Manchester United has been relying on young players such as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford for goals. In Felipe Anderson, they will have a trusted and proven scorer that will allow them to win important games.
So far this season, the Lazio player has made 45 appearances for the team and managed to score 9 goals. For a player that is still 23, he still has time to improve and to become a world-class striker. Continue reading Anderson not leaving Lazio according to agent
Italian side, Lazio have appointed a new coach to replace Stefano Pioli. Pioli is being replaced by Simone Inzaghi following a derby loss to Roma. The loss was colossal for Lazio, losing by four goals to one. The replacement was announced on Sunday, after the loss to their city rival. The team is now in eight position and may not make Europe next season.
Stefano Pioli helped Lazio to a third place finish in the last campaign but lost a chance to engage in the UEFA champions league due to a loss to Bayern Leverkusen in the playoffs.
The new coach, Inzaghi, is coming to the seria A for the first time even though he had been with the club’s youth squad. The trend just continues as Lazio is the eighth in the league to change a coach this same season.
The 39-year-old Simone Inzaghi, who is a former Lazio player, is the younger brother of legendary striker, Filippo Inzaghi. Filippo Inzaghi played for juventus and AC Milan. He even coached AC Milan last season. Filippo Inzaghi had taken over the reins from Clarence Seedorf. Since he couldn’t turn around the woes of the once revered club, he was also fired and replaced with Sinisa Mihajlovic. The current coach has also come under fire for poor performance this season and may be replaced during the summer. Continue reading LAZIO APPOINT NEW COACH
