Lucio lashes out at ex-Inter Milan teammate Materazzi

Former Inter Milan defender Lucio has lashed out at Marco Materazzi.

Materazzi has declared Lucio, now with Palmeiras, should retire.

"It's difficult to talk about Materazzi, because I arrived in Italy in 2009 and the last time I saw him play well was in 2006," said Lucio.

"Perhaps it hurts him that before I arrived he'd never got past the Champions League Round of 16.

"Materazzi is a bit repressed, but on the pitch he was very nasty as he went in to hurt his opponents. I played alongside him and heard him say he played to hurt the opposition.

"Now he behaves the same way off the field - as a nasty person."
