A few hours after the end of the game, Maggi wanted to apologize for his behavior. The statements of the physiotherapist of Lazio are reported in the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“In my many years of profession, I never had a captain to offend anyone. In addition to being a family man, I am a respectful person and my professional story tells it.
Last night, on the occasion of the match against Napoli, I let myself go to an inappropriate behavior and I deeply apologize for this with everyone and in particular with Mr. Rino Gattuso ".
These apologies came after both Gattuso and Inzaghi had already spoken on the episode minimizing it.
The Napoli coach had also made self-criticism of Sky Sport's microphones:
“Nothing particular happened, big words flew by and I also reacted. I shouldn't have done it. If the referee expelled me, he would have been right. In any case, these are things that happen and end on the pitch. "
Very similar statements had also been issued by Inzaghi also to Sky Sport:
“We were nervous because we wanted to avoid fourth place. With Gattuso there are no problems, they are things that happen and end up on the pitch. I have no problems with anyone, in fact I say that Napoli is a great team despite the ranking position ”.
