Lazio signed young Brazilian defender Gustavo Cipriano from Santos in the summer; the centre-back joining up with the club’s primavera side for this season. Speaking to Lazio Style Channel before today’s match between the Biancocelesti and Trapani’s squad in the Primavera cup this morning, Cipriano said this:
“Lazio was in my destiny, there was the possibility of coming to Italy last year but then the Biancocelesti did not find the agreement with Santos. I’m happy to be here, it’s a dream to play with this shirt. My model is Thiago Silva, I always watch his videos to grow. Santos made me grow, I owe it to them if I arrived in Rome. Playing in Lazio involves great responsibilities, I will give it my all to repay the trust of the fans and the club.”
