Arguably, centre-back Francesco Acerbi has been the best signing of Lazio’s summer, adding a lot of consistency and talent at the back, replacing Stefan de Vrij who left the club to join Inter on a free.
Speaking to Sky Sport, via CalcioMercato, Acerbi spoke after the 2-1 win over Apollon Limassol:
‘We are immediately forward and we had a great first half, we missed the 2-0 and maybe we were too cramped, we lowered ourselves too much after doubling, we risked and conceded. We need a lesson, the important thing is that the three points have arrived. The new ones have done well, because in training they do well and the result can be seen. Who made his debut tonight he made an excellent team performance, then he came out a bit ‘of fatigue but there is. How much can grow Lazio? With the ambition that we have and the city must grow, but it is done with work in training. The victories give more confidence, Sunday we have Genoa and we must win absolutely to get us up in the standings.’
