The Italian defender emerged as one of the top defenders in the league this year. He played a key role in Lazio’s top-four finish last season in Serie A play and its qualification to the UEFA Champions League knockout stage.
More so, Lazio forward Ciro Immobile was a notable exclusion from the squad, although he took home Golden Boot honors for last season.
