Mauro Icardi said it was “destiny” that possible future Nerazzurri team-mate Stefan de Vrij gave away a critical penalty that helped Inter come from behind to win at Lazio and seal Champions League qualification.

De Vrij has confirmed he is leaving Lazio at the end of the season, with Inter reportedly set to announce his signing on a free transfer as the defender is out of contract.

Lazio needed only a point to return to the Champions League for the first time in 10 years, but the hosts collapsed in spectacular fashion late on at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

De Vrij rashly dived in on Icardi to concede a penalty converted by the striker, with Matias Vecino heading home the winner three minutes later – Lazio captain Senad Lulic dismissed for a second yellow card between the goals.
