Federico Barba speaks after Lazio scalp

Roma-owned defender Federico Barba, who is on loan at newly promoted Empoli, spoke to Sky Italia after scoring a goal against his hometown’s rivals, Lazio, as Empoli won 2-1 this afternoon.

“My goal against Lazio? The most important thing is that this goal helped the team, we were coming off three losses and weren’t very confident. Florenzi? I haven’t spoke to him before the match — maybe we’ll speak afterwards.”
