Lazio sporting director Igli Tare presented the signing of Argentinian defender Mateo Musacchio from AC Milan when speaking to gathered reporters at a press conference earlier today. His words were collected by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

We are here to present the last or I think the only purchase of the January market. Mateo Musacchio is a player with great international experience, above all he knows Italian football very well.

We know him well, he played at AC Milan for 4 years, for our situation it was very useful to make a purchase well thought out together with the coach.

We needed someone with a lot of experience and who knows Serie A. It would have been much easier to fit him in than other choices. We are very happy to introduce him today, we welcome him to our family.

The 30-year-old Musacchio, who signed on a six-month deal with an option for a further two years attached linked to appearances and other objectives, only made two appearances this season for the Rossoneri, for a total of 95 minutes.
