Nigeria international Eddy Ogenyi Onazi has found favour in newly appointed coach of Lazio, Simone Inzaghi as opposed to his predecessor Stefano Pioli.

At a point this season, the 23 year old went close to two months without playing a game for Lazio but of all that appears to have changed under new manager Simone Inzaghi.

Pioli was sacked two weeks ago and since the coming of Inzaghi, Onazi who rarely gets to play when Pioli was in charge has now featured in the club’s last four games under new manager Inzaghi.

Onazi used the opportunity given to him to score his first league goal of the season, netting in Lazio’s 2-0 win over Empoli.

Since his return to the match day set up for the last four games, Lazio have won twice and also lose same amount of game, the latest been the 2-1 loss they suffered against Sampdoria on Sunday night.
