Today I say goodbye to Lazio and I do it feeling extremely proud because I have defended the shirt of one of the most important teams in Italian football.
Rome is a wonderful city and Lazio is a gigantic club in every way, but you the fans have been my greatest gift. You showed me infinite love since day one and I can assure you that it’s the same love I’ve had and I’ll have for you today, tomorrow and always. That’s not going to change.
I want to thank everybody, from the first teammate who opened the doors of the dressing room to the last worker who has made sure that I had everything to be able to develop my passion. Three years full of learning, personally and professionally.
Good luck and success, family. See you soon. Forza Lazio!
