Lazio coach Inzaghi admits title push over after Lecce defeat

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi admits their Scudetto push is over after defeat to Lecce.

Lecce stunned Lazio 2-1 on Tuesday night.

“The problem is that we returned from the lockdown with injuries," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“This limited our ability to rotate the squad, some played today as well who weren't at their best. We lost three games in 15 days, after going without defeat for many months, so that's not a coincidence.

“I can only thank the team for all they have done. It's natural there's disappointment considering how well we were doing before the break, as some of the absentees really would've made a big difference today. The performance arrived despite many players being only at 50 per cent.

“Our dream must continue, which is to qualify mathematically for the Champions League. We hope to achieve it as soon as possible, but that is our only objective."
