Lazio Legend Stayed Put for Three Reasons Last Summer

Ciro Immobile seriously thought about leaving Lazio to move to Saudi Arabia last summer, and that remains a hot topic for the future. In the end, he decided to stay for three motivations in particular, Corriere dello Sport details.

First of all, he wanted to star in the Champions League considering their hard-earned return. Moreover, he wishes to play in Euro 2024 with Italy. Finally, he has a strong bond with the city, the fans, and the club. The management would have been in trouble had he left. They would have had to find another top striker after searching for a proper deputy for years.

Immobile snapped out of his scoring slump with a last-second PK against Fiorentina. He has hit the net 3 times in 12 appearances. He has frequently been slowed down by small injuries.

Coach Maurizio Sarri ruled out a January departure. The striker expressed a hint of regret for not fleeing last summer because of the criticism he endured while he sputtered.

Our Take on Immobile

They are all legitimate reasons, and it sounds a lot like this might be his last dance with Lazio. Still, he’s not a lock to make the Italy squad. Giacomo Raspadori will be there if healthy and will be joined by just two other strikers. He’ll have to outperform two among Gianluca Scamacca, Mateo Retegui, and Moise Kean.
