French defender Michael Ciani spoke after Lazio’s thrilling 1:0 win last night over Inter: “The approach in the first half was perfect – said Ciani for Canal+ - we did well to close any gaps and gave them very little space. It was an important victory. We knew Inter is one of the best teams in Italy, but we wanted to win at all costs. Especially after the disappointing draw with Bologna last round.”

Ciani also spoke about Klose: “Miroslav is fantastic! We are fortunate to play with one of the best strikers in Europe. But let me say a few word on the audience: the fans were great and gave us great support. The atmosphere was crazy and it charged me!”

The French giant is becoming more and more comfortable with Rome and Lazio: “I feel really good right now, I feel much better than few months ago. I can say that I integrated in the squad well. I started to learn Italian.”

In the final minutes the central defender showed he has the brains also – he stopped his team mates Hernanes and Marchetti from having a fight. “I tried to separate them immediately. The atmosphere was electric. Hernanes was a bit nervous, but there was nothing in particular. Things like this during a game can happen.”
