Ghanaian football legend Michael Essien has named the best manager he had during his illustrious football career. In a chat with TalkSport earlier this month, the former Blues midfielder talked about the manager he enjoyed playing for the most.
Lazio is the team that is capable of taking away the Serie A title from Juventus. The club will be able to win the title after waiting for it nearly two decades. They are currently on the second position of the table with 62 points and their match on Wednesday is important on their streak to the title. With the loss, they will be unable to bring out the pressure in Juventus.
The match against Atlanta on Wednesday is their first match after the three-month-long break from coronavirus and their last match was on February 29.
Lazio President Claudio Lotito has been looking forward to different ways to motivate the team. He has designed the shirts of the team is similar to the ones in 2000 the year which they won the Serie A title. This is one of the best chances that Lazio has got after nearly twenty years of waiting for the title.
Lucas Leiva walked in the same path as Jordan Henderson but walked out of without the glory of the title win. Liverpool has one of the best fanbases who has supported them throughout all these years. But sometimes the fans could have certain dislike towards some players. Jordan Henderson and Lucas Leiva are the players who belonged to this category.
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking forward to sign Lazio striker Ciro Immobile to their team in the upcoming transfer window. The player has been exceptional in the season by scoring 34 goals by appearing in 35 games. He is ahead of Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo for three goals and the club has a few matches left to play in the current season of Serie A.
Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has confirmed that the club failed with an attempt to sign Olivier Giroud during the last transfer window. The France international was fancied to leave the Blues at the midway stage of the campaign due to the lack of first-team football but he eventually stayed put with the west London giants.
Lucas Leiva does not regret his decision of leaving Liverpool to join the Italian club Lazio. He says that he has not been happy at the club which he has been a part for nearly a decade. He has played 346 games for the club as a defender and, in 2017, he transferred to Lazio when an opportunity opened up for him. He has also been the part of Brazil National Team where he had made 24 appearances.
Lazio striker Ciro Immobile is looking forward to the final phase of the season where he has the chance of becoming the highest goalscorer in a single Serie A campaign. Gonzalo Higuain currently holds the record with 36 goals in a single season and Immobile is not far off from the tally, having netted 27 times in the league.
Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes Odion Ighalo has provided the Red Devils with a completely different option when compared to the likes of Anthony Martial and Daniel James. The Nigeria international made the loan switch from Shanghai Shenhua during the closing stages of the January transfer window and he has since made a good impression with four goals and one assist in all competitions.
Lazio striker Ciro Immobile has said that the club must continue with their superb run of form as they seek to win the Scudetto for the first time in two decades. The Capital outfit have remained unbeaten in the Serie A since late September and during this period, they have dropped just four points from 21 top-flight matches.
Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi has expressed his delight after his team were able to register 1-0 win over CFR Cluj in the Europa League group stage. The Serie A side have endured a dismal campaign in the European competition but they managed to register a victory against the Romanian outfit to keep them in contention for the knockouts.
Speaking in a press conference, Inzaghi acknowledged that his players had a tough battle on their hands with Cluj and he is pleased that they came up with the maximum points. He added to pose regret for the performances in the past few European games and stated that his team need to find ways to close out matches.
