Lazio boss Inzaghi hails Milinkovic-Savic attitude after Coppa Italia final win

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi hailed the attitude of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic after their Coppa Italia final defeat of Atalanta.

Milinkovic-Savic came off the bench to open the scoring before Joaquin Correa finished a counter-attack to clinch the 2-0 win for Lazio.

Inzaghi enthused, “It was a wonderful evening in front of marvellous fans. We had a great game, but also congratulations to Atalanta, as it was hard fought, the same way it was in Serie A, and this time we did well to turn the incidents our way.

“I told the lads that at times those who come off the bench are more important than the starting XI. I am satisfied, as we had a wonderful run in this Coppa Italia."

Inzaghi added, “We wanted this victory, this trophy, because we gave it our all and will now enjoy this night. Thank you."
