Lazio ace Hernanes: Winning Coppa Italia just incredible

Lazio midfielder Hernanes was thrilled to lift the Coppa Italia after victory over AS Roma last night. The Brazilian has been a revelation for Lazio this season.

"It is incredible, I have no words. This is a unique moment in history. I remember as a child I thought about how short out life is and that we have to live it to the full, to write our name in history.

"I never knew that after 12 years I'd have this opportunity with my teammates to place my name permanently in Lazio's history.

"In the second leg of the derby I missed a penalty and gave away another, so from that day I started to think about this Final. I expected Roma to beat Inter and reach the Final here.

"It wasn't fair after all I did in that game to end it like that. I knew I had something reserved for today. We were too concentrated and focused to lose."
