Luis Alberto admits Lazio frustration after Parma triumph
Lazio attacker Luis Alberto has said that he does not understand the style of play demonstrated by the side on occasions. The Spaniard has been one of the standout performers for Lazio in the past two campaigns and he made a crucial impact against Parma where he grabbed a brace in a comfortable 4-1 win.
Speaking after the game, Alberto expressed his frustration with the current style of play under Simone Inzaghi and suggested that he would prefer to play further forward rather than slotting into the heart of the midfield, he said: "Here in Rome , though, it seems that when you play well and make goals you're a phenomenon, but when you play for the team - and maybe you do not make goals and assists, but still achieve a good performance. It seems there is something wrong. It's a different way from my understanding football and I often don't understand it. I play 30-40 meters further back: for me it is important to play and feel comfortable."
“Alberto has played in multiple positions during the course of the campaign including the midfield role against Parma.However, he has shown in the past that he can be effective higher up the field and it remains to be seen whether Inzaghi would consider the player’s request “following the international break.
Elsewhere, Lazio have remained outside of the top four for the past eight gameweeks but they still have the chance of making the push for the Champions League positions. The Capital outfit are currently occupying the sixth position on the table with a six-point gap but they have the additional game in hand to reduce the deficit. Moreover, they have to face both Inter and AC Milan on the road before the season concludes and it can be said that they have the destiny in their own hands.
