Goran Pandev, prodigal son of Lotito, returned to the Olimpico, scored, and celebrated – the latter widely considered taboo nowadays. “I celebrated against the president not against the fans. SS Lazio was a fundamental step in my career, and I’m appreciative”, he stated.
“Mine was an important goal, which had a particular flavour for me and helped us win today. It was a key victory, after three consecutive losses and we were intent on winning in this venue, with merit”.
Pandev then told Rai Sport 1: “Team chemistry is improving and the work that we’ve been carrying out with Benitez is starting to show its fruits. We are working hard in training and want to continue to improve”.
