Just hours before the TIM Cup quarter-final between Inter and Lazio, Matias Almeyda spoke to Il Messaggero at San Siro: “I continue to follow Italian football and I have the greatest respect for both teams. I think that my time in Lazio was were I was at my best, I really felt at home there. They have a good project going on at the moment with Simone Inzaghi and I was happy to hear that they chose him as the new coach. He was always a good team mate and a real professional. I like his first half of the season, you can see that Lazio is on the right path. “

After that, the Argentinian midfielder spoke about the chance of seeing Diego Simeone on Inter’s bench: “Diego has proven for some time now that he is amongst the top coaches. At Atletic Madrid he has always done well, but I’m sure of that he wants to return to Inter. He hasn’t said anything to me, it’s just a thing you notice. He has been a while now at Atletic and surely wants to try a new challenge and he would be the perfect coach for Inter.”
