Lazio Defender Denis Vavro: “Inzaghi Didn’t Want Me, That’s Why I Left”

Lazio defender Denis Vavro no longer wants to remain with the Roman club after his year on loan in Spain.

Speaking in an interview (as reported by La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 25-year-old Slovakian defender commented on his season on loan with relegated La Liga side Huesca and his experiences in Rome with the Biancocelesti.

I came back to enjoy playing football, just like in Denmark. At Lazio it was not like that, maybe only in the first months after my arrival I was happy.

Inzaghi didn’t want me, that’s why I left. But if I could choose, I would prefer to continue in Spain.

The 25-year-old Vavro, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2024, made 11 appearances this campaign for Huesca after joining the Spanish club in the January transfer window. He played 616 minutes for the club, making eight tackles and four blocks.

Vavro was signed by Lazio in the summer of 2019 but struggled to make a strong impression under coach Simone Inzaghi; In his debut season, he made 17 appearances in total but failed to inspire confidence in that time, often seeming a little shaky and unsure of himself.

The Slovakian defender cost the Biancocelesti around €10 million but did not justify that price tag, being yet another disappointing signing by sporting director Igli Tare.
