Hernanes insists hard work over the winter break earned Lazio their 1-0 win against Internazionale
Hernanes insists the hard work Lazio put in during the winter break gave them the edge in their 1-0 win against Internazionale, on Monday.
The Biancocelesti secured victory with a late Miroslav Klose volley and Hernanes believes the result was a just reward for the players ensuring they were fully fit coming into the contest.
“Reja doesn’t have a magic wand,” he told Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia. “We trained a lot over the Christmas holidays.
“I didn’t go back to Brazil because I wanted to be part of a team that shows its potential.
“We have to improve mentally and physically to be at the top of the table.
“If we are all 100 per cent fit then we can make our contribution.”
Lazio are currently 10th in Serie A, eleven points adrift of the top five.
