As the captain of Lazio, I can’t shout that we will win the Scudetto, but every year I have that consistent idea when I start the season.I had to stop everything that happened after not qualifying for the World Cup. I understand that Others can’t be the ones who decided to retire – he added -. Thanks to the club too, I decided I still had a lot to offer.

He definitely played a decisive role in choosing to continue with the national team Mancini. “I think the coach had no doubts about my retirementI talked a lot about it with my family and in the end decided to carry on,” Immobile explained. The disappointment of not qualifying for the World Cup and the harsh criticism affected me – he continued -. However, during the weeks I realized that other people could not decide my path, who decided to retire for me.”

Once the past is archived, Ciro is now a good time to start fresh in the blue even with a different role within the group. More important and heavy role. “I feel like one of the leaders in the locker room‘I feel I should give something more to the group, both on and off the field,’ he explained. This generational change is happening with many youngsters and Italian football needs something more, it has to start over from us.Scamaka, Pellegri, Pinamonte I love them – explained the Lazio striker. Raspaduri has already made it to the European Championships with us and I already consider him a semi-veteran. Gianluca decided to go to the Prime Minister, a difficult choice and you have to give him time. They have to score with the club and then trust the team as well.”

“The attacker has to have more continuity than other roles, continuity always means many goals, the attacker must always score many goals – he is continuous -. It is better to have 5 seasons of 15 goals than one of 30, then if you score 5 of 25 goals you will be the best. I always look to the best who always score goals. Young strikers have to set this goal, they always score many goals, and in today’s football they are able to help the team.” I did my apprenticeship and today’s guys should start doing it, I started from Sorrento and did everything – he added -. Today, with the pressure on young people, this process is accelerating and they are not given enough time to grow.”We need to give young people time and a way to express themselvesIt might be a little easier at the club. We need more patience,” continued Immobile, who also spoke about the units and difficulties he faces at Azzurri.

“In the form I say that nothing changes for me, whatever the coach chooses for me is good – select -. After winning four top scorers and then less with the national team. I ask myself this every day precisely because I always want to get better and give my best, and sometimes the desire to overdo it leads you to do big crap. “I have always felt confident in the national team – he added -. The criticism didn’t bother me too much, but To take credit for the striker for not qualifying for the World Cup and not winning the European Championship is ridiculous“.” I didn’t like this diversity of opinions, she laughs a little, but you also accept this and move on, “continued.” I have always been a person without limits, always trying to move forward and look to the future with confidence and positivity – continued Ciro -. This prompted me to do extraordinary things in addition to my artistic qualities. “That’s why I can’t explain my moments in the national team, it’s been a bit difficult in recent years – he added -. In Lazio I couldn’t do more, unfortunately in the national team the numbers were lower but here too I always gave my best“.

As for the attacks on the socialImmobile has very clear ideas. “Social media is now part of our world, and it is normal for our eyes to fall but we must be balanced in our judgments – he said -. I was thinking of leaving the national teambut given what I did, I thought it was unfair for others to decide.”I think the haters should be denouncedespecially with regard to unjustified ugliness. I’ve been getting really bad messages about my kids and we need to put an end to this – Explained. Throughout the social world, not only in the world of sports, it is written about everything. Maybe it’s hard to trace the real people, sometimes they are fake profiles, if UEFA is moving it is right to send him back to Italy as well.”

Then some considerations on the way to take them Back with the national team. “When the team wins, it must immediately be good at restoring enthusiasm and today that is a bit lacking – he explained -. It is possible that the arrival of new players, the confirmation of the coach and all the staff, should give us confidence and morale. We need a little bit of enthusiasm that we’re lacking at the moment because the World Cup is coming up soon and we won’t be there“.

But first we have to start well from the upcoming matches in the blue jersey. Starting with the match againstEngland. “Unfortunately we don’t have good memories with the national team in Milan, I expect there to beTough match against a physical team – Ciro announced -. For them, it will be one of the last opportunities to prepare for the World Cup.”We also want to give a good performance to the fans, They will also be disappointed but we have to start over.”

Then some jokes about Possibility to get the Scudetto Lazio. “As captain of Lazio I can’t shout that we will win the Scudetto, but every year I have this fixed idea of ​​when I start to retire – explained the striker -. I have this mentality, I would like to be able to reach the limit. We believe that a player and a man should always strive to achieve maximum. I’m not saying that Lazio will definitely win the Scudetto, but they are a growing team and the battle this year will be very open.“.

Close when excluded from Mancini D calls Zaniolo e Zani. “I think the coach made some choices, I don’t know if they are related to what happened in June – explained Ciro -. I saw Zakani at the training camp and he told me about the physical problem in June … there was some controversy, but it’s crazy to think that Someone wants to escape from Coverciano.” “I saw eyes Providel When the summons arrived and reminded me of when my first summons arrived,” the blue striker concluded.
