Lazio Primavera won their first Coppa Italia for 35 years last night after goals from Crecco (2), Lombardi and Minala. They beat Fiorentina 4-2 on the night and 7-3 on aggregate.

Simone Inzaghi: "The credit goes to the boys who were great. Over the two matches we deserved the win over a very good team. I'm very happy for this group of boys who I have seen grow, they deserve it all. We are working to bring these guys to the first team on a permanent basis, we hope to make them reach that goal as soon as possible."

"I dedicate the win  to Mirko Fersini, a boy who grew up with Lombardi, Fillipini, Pollace and the others, who would have been with this group to celebrate the Italian Cup. We play in the stadium named after him and therefore we could not miss a thought for Mirko."

Bollini: "It is a deserved trophy. A journey that began years ago and I hope the cycle continues. I am tied to this group, the fantastic staff, I am happy as I have lived out a very strong emotion. It was a bitter pill 11 years ago when I lost the Coppa final against Atalanta, so I am doubly happy. We have demonstrated extraordinary fortitude as to keep winning after the Scudetto was not easy."

Mauri via Twitter: "Congratulations to Mr. Inzaghi and his boys for the Italian Cup triumph!".

Keita via Twitter: "Well done boys!"

Crecco: "It's a special evening, we have this win that has not come for many years and I'm really happy with this performance. We are a fabulous group, all fighting for the same result. Thanks to Inzaghi and Bollini, who in two years has made us grow tremendously. We aim to repeat the journey of last year and win back the Scudetto."

Minala: "It was an incredible week, which began with my debut against Sampdoria. We wanted to bring the cup home, we knew what we had to do and we did it. This victory is for everyone at Lazio who followed us here. Thank you and we are all happy. How far can we go? We aim for it all, there are no limits. We won the Coppa but we know it is only a stepping stone and don't want to stop. We want the Scudetto. We are the champions of Italy and we want to bring the Scudetto home."
