Immobile’s interview with Sportitalia
Here is what is highlighted:
How important is it to score?
“Scoring a goal is always nice, however you do it. When I started doing this sport, I always believed in true value and passion. It has become my passion, my daily bread.
When I meet fans by team, I am filled with joy when they compliment me on Ciro as a man and not just Ciro as a footballer. I’m happy when people talk about me as a person because when I stop playing, that’s what’s left.”
My experience at Pescara?
“Ciro di Pescara was a single boy in a team of guys who wanted to emerge: Pescara started with 2000 people at the team presentation, we did an incredible job.
There were teams of great value that we overtook and finished first. Ciro now has 4 children, who he thinks about improving, who he looks to the future both on and off the pitch ”.
“What I’m doing with Lazio is truly incredible: the daily affection pushes me to always give my best. We feel at home, we are now of “Roman adoption”: 50% of the blood, however, is always Neapolitan”.
No doubts about the Scudetto fight: Napoli has the advantage
When asked about the Scudetto fight, Immobile is sure: the Naples he’s ahead, even if the Winter World Cup could affect the second part of the championship.
“I think Napoli have a big advantage right now, especially in terms of points. With the world championship, it’s a new thing: if he can keep up that pace he has an important advantage. We are fighting with great teams”.
My relationship with Lotito?
“I have a fantastic relationship with the president, the best a footballer can have: I have a contract that binds me to the club for another 3 years, as long as I’m here I’ll give everything for this shirt.
If one day I want to make a life choice, we’ll talk about it sincerely. Now I’m focusing on the pitch and on what I can give, even afterwards, since I’m captain.”
Raspadori new property?
“I think he’s technically stronger than me, with fewer goals: fewer strikers. For the national team game, he is useful for his ability to integrate and be hungry. As a footballer, he is a very valuable footballer. He’s a good guy and that counts for a lot.”
