Wolves forward Pedro Neto discussed his time with Lazio and how much it helped him to improve in an interview with Portuguese media outlet Ojogo earlier today.
I entered a different culture, a different country, a different way of playing. I was only 17 when I moved to Rome, but luckily everything went well.
I was at the end of my contract with Braga, but they managed to keep me despite interest from several clubs. But then Lazio made an important offer.
I had only played three games in the first team and it was a big and quick jump, but I wouldn’t go back. I learned a lot at Lazio despite playing only five games.
I evolved a lot tactically, I learned what it means to be in a country outside Portugal and we are talking about a very important league.
The 20-year-old Portuguese forward then touched on how the Biancocelesti helped him to grow the most out of any of the clubs in his career, and which aspects he has improved the most.
I’ve grown a lot especially from a tactical point of view. Since I was young, I’ve been a player with great determination, but my time at Lazio has helped me to work more without the ball, to run for the team.
The 20-year-old Neto, who is contracted Wolves until 2025, spent the 2018/19 season on loan with Lazio, where he made five appearances across all competitions.
He joined Wolves last summer, and in his first season in England he scored five goals and provided five assists in 44 appearances.
This campaign, Neto has scored four goals and provided two assists in 18 appearances.
