If not the most, one of the players who more reviews has received in recent months in Italy has been Cyrus Immobile. And why, if he has been the top scorer in Serie A? Because his performance is still, for many, below what was expected. His agent, Marco Sommella, has come out on thiswho in statements to tuttomercato than pointed out directly to his country of having a doubtful criterion. And as an example he has given the treatment he received Ancelotti during the years he spent there.
“We are in a country that considered Ancelotti finished and believed that he kept training just to go on vacation. Instead, with Real Madrid he has proven to be among the strongest coaches in the world”, said. Immobile missed the last two league games due to a right ankle injury, missing the key moment, in which Lazio played for the possibility of entering the Champions League (they finally finished fifth and will play in the Europa League).
“And what can we do? The same Thursday the MRI told him that he should even wear an orthopedic device. I can’t explain more, it was just a shame. When you have to point the finger, everyone is willing to do it, while when there is clearly something objective to applaud, in full view, no one does. Perhaps many people have bad faith, with all due respect,” he said.
Lastly, regarding the criticism of his performance with the national team, he said: “When Italy he won the European Championship the credit was given to everyone except him. Whereas when he lost to Macedon, the only one to blame was Cyrus. I recently told you that most of the fansnot only from Lazio, in general, they will realize what he did in 7-8 years. It is already difficult to win once the top scorer in Serie A, let alone four. But many go after those who score 3 goals in Serie B…”.
