Ciro Immobile holds Unai Emery firmly to blame for his failure to succeed during his time in La Liga with Sevilla.

Ciro Immobile is currently the leading goal scorer in Serie A. The striker is the driving force behind Lazio’s push for the Scudetto this season.

However, earlier in the Italian’s career, he spent a couple of years on the books at Sevilla in La Liga.

In fact, while he was on the books for two years, he actually only played for them for six months.

The player insists that the blame for his failed time in Spain lies squarely at the feet of his then manager Unai Emery.

In an interview reported by Goal, he feels he was unfairly treated and never really understood what the former Arsenal boss wanted from him.

Immobile was and is a proven goal scorer wherever he has been. He feels he never really got a fair chance at Sevilla.

He said:

“I felt bad, I didn’t have many chances.”

“In January I thought of leaving but Emery asked me to stay.”

“At first I went out and scored two goals straight away, but then Emery took me out again.”

“I thought, ‘This guy didn’t understand anything’. “

“Let’s just say that when you don’t feel like part of a group, everything is useless.”

He is definitely happy and getting plenty of chances at Lazio, as well as scoring plenty of goals.
