Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi delighted with 6-2 thumping of Palermo

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi was delighted with their 6-2 hammering of Palermo.

The scoreline was dominated by Keita Balde Diao's hat-trick.

“We put in a great performance and it was a very important game for us, so we got it locked down," said Inzaghi

“We relaxed a bit too much in the second half and conceded two avoidable goals. The lads did well and, as I said after the Sampdoria game, I saw a reaction."

He added: “These lads are doing great things. Naturally, Keita is a player I'd always like to have, just like Lucas Biglia and Stefan de Vrij. They are three top players that Lazio would do well to keep."
