Speaking with delight at seeing two more of his Primavera players get game time in Serie A, Inzaghi spoke to the media regarding the past 6 months and his hopes for the future:

"There are so many others ready. Crecco and Keita were in the first team last season and this year it happened to Tounkara and Minala. We hope that others will follow such as Lombardi, Filippini, Polace and the two keepers. We hope to incorporate them slowly which is important. Keita? He has done very well. It is not easy to impose yourself in a debut season in Serie A but he has proven his worth on the field."

"The transition from the field to bench? It was not easy, although in my last years as a footballer I had physical problems and played very little. To coach Lazio in Serie A? It is my dream. I have lived in Rome for 12 years and had two children here. The president knows me and if he and Tare think I am ready one day to make the jump I'll be ready."

Inzaghi finally commented on Lazio's season and failure to qualify for Europe:

"After narrowly missing out on the Champions League for two years and winning the Coppa, this 9th place does not reflect the true value of the squad. The first half of the season wasn't good enough to merit Europe. Hopefully we will get back to Europe and get the fans back close to the team."
