  10/04/2011: Brocchi: "We deserve the 4th place more than others"

"We win today after a difficult week that left a bitter taste in my mouth. Today was a truly deserved victory. The game against Napoli has made the fight for the Champions League place more exciting, as there is one place available for three teams. But I tell you this, if we get the 4th place at the end of the season, then know that we deserve it more than others as we never had any support from the referees, nor even from the media."

Brocchi has not gotten over the massacre that Banti committed against Lazio, but now he turns the page and applauds Mazzolleni, the referee of the game against Parma: 

"Today the referee was very good. Yes there was this incident with Zarate in the area, but that could be misleading."

Coming to the coming away game against Catania, Lazio must win to keep the pace, and the last away win has been in February 13 when Lazio won Brescia. To add salt to the wound, the last three away games have all ended in defeats.

"We must give more," said Brocchi. "But now we are in the fourth place with six games left and we have shown everyone that we are a good team. We are the first team in the capital and if we reach our objective of qualifying to the Champions League, then I say again, we deserve it more than others. I am very proud with what we are doing."
