Ciro Immobile admits dreams come true after European Golden Shoe win. “I am super happy and proud of what I’ve achieved.”
Immobile equalled the all-time Serie A record of 36 goals in a single season, was crowned Capocannoniere and the European Golden Shoe winner. ‘Dreams do come true.’
The Lazio striker found the net in this evening’s 3-1 defeat at Napoli, matching Gonzalo Higuain’s record that was set with the Partenopei in May 2016.
“I am super happy and proud of what I’ve achieved, especially when I look back to where I started and everything I went through,” Immobile told Lazio Style Channel.
“If you truly believe, sometimes, dreams do come true. I can only thank the coach and staff, my teammates. And I can assure you these records are for the whole team.
“I also thank the Lazio fans, who made me feel indispensable for this team. So I am so proud of that. And I want to be a living example that if you never give up, you can achieve any target.
“I’m so proud to have my place in the history of this sport. I am moved thinking of how my teammates greeted me in the dressing room after I scored a hat-trick at Verona. That’s what the sport is about.”
