8 . Returning to Italy once again Lombardo signed for Lazio alongside fellow countryman Stefano Okaka in 1997 although they were relegated just two years later however despite this disappointment continued to make 32 appearences throughout two more successful campaigns at Laziopolis including being part of Roma’s Treble winning squad under Zdenek Zeman in 2001 helping him achieve international recognition which led him into coaching roles notably taking charge of Serie D side Pro Piacenza only to leave midway through the 2015-16 season after recording just 5 wins from 25 games leaving many fans disillusioned about future prospects especially given that recently ex-Lazio player Simone Inzaghi had taken over management duties going into 2016-17 - much like when Francesco Totti took up front job managing Roma following injuries sustained by Daniele De Rossi; both times expectations were high however these coaches failed miserably [9 sentences omitted].
