Lazio ace Ciro Immobile full of pride winning Serie A and Euro Golden Boots

Lazio ace Ciro Immobile is full of pride after winning the European Golden Boot.

Immobile equalled the all-time Serie A record of 36 goals in a single season, as he won the Capocannoniere and the European Golden Shoe.

He struck in defeat to Napoli and said, “I am super happy and proud of what I've achieved, especially when I look back to where I started and everything I went through.

“If you truly believe, sometimes, dreams do come true. I can only thank the coach and staff, my teammates, and I can assure you these records are for the whole team.

“I also thank the Lazio fans, who made me feel indispensable for this team, and I am so proud of that. I want to be a living example that if you never give up, you can achieve any target.

“I'm so proud to have my place in the history of this sport. I am moved thinking of how my teammates greeted me in the dressing room after I scored a hat-trick at Verona. That's what the sport is about."
