Daichi Kamada has instantly made a strong impression at Lazio, despite the team’s poor start to the new season.
The 27-year-old Japanese midfielder joined the Biancocelesti on a free transfer in the summer after his contract expired with Eintracht Frankfurt, penning a four-year deal with the club.
Lazio have not started the season well, managing to pick up just four points in their opening five Serie A matches, angering club president Claudio Lotito.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lazio started preparations for their clash against Torino in Formello yesterday, carrying out a video session with Maurizio Sarri.
Kamada surprised his teammates and the coach because he’d already studied Ivan Juric’s side, proving his impressive meticulousness and desire to make a difference in the squad.
The Japanese midfielder was brought in to replace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and has quickly proven himself capable in the midfield, doing well despite the poor results.
Kamada has seen 325 minutes of action across five appearances for Lazio so far this season.
