Unneeded Lazio Defender Vavro: “I Definitely Want to Leave Rome in January”

Lazio defender Denis Vavro has made it clear that he wants to leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window.

Speaking in an interview with Slovakian media outlet Sport.sk yesterday, the 25-year-old Slovakian defender first commented on his mentality and desire to return to regular first team football again.

I’ll tell you, I’m physically ready because I usually train with the team, but I’m not well from a psychological point of view.

After all, the last time I played a 90-minute game was in June with Slovakia in preparation for the European Championship match against Bulgaria. I admit that I have a lot of thoughts in my head.

However, I believe it will all work out in the end. I definitely want to leave Rome in January. This is not a place for me, I can’t stay where I can only train without ever being able to play.

He touched on why Lazio decided not to let him leave in the summer transfer window.

The club decided that I had to stay for another six months.

The reason was the financial rules that apply to foreigners in Italy and the fact that the club would have to pay a certain amount of taxes for me.

Vavro commented on his plans for the upcoming January transfer window.

Fortunately, it looks like I can leave on loan for six months.

Then it will be seen in the summer, but we want to choose a club that will redeem me permanently after that six months.

Finally, Vavro speculated on which clubs he could end up joining in next month’s market.

The Spanish second division is an option. Whether it’s Huesca, where I was in the spring, Valladolid or Almeria.

We’ll see.

The 25-year-old Vavro, joined Lazio in the summer of 2019 in a deal worth around €10 million. Since joining the club, the Slovakian defender has made 19 appearances across all competitions, for a total of 866 minutes.

Coach Maurizio Sarri did briefly work with Vavro during the pre-season training camp in Auronzo di Cadore, but decided that the player was not up to his expected level and so left him on the sidelines of the project.
