Biancocelesti defender Nicolò Casale spoke on the occasion of his official presentation with Lazio at the training centre in Formello:
"In my last game against Verona I played against Lazio, I already knew there was interest but I only thought about doing well on that occasion too. Now I am here and I am happy, I strongly wanted this team. This is a big step in my growth, two years ago I played in Serie B and now I find myself in Europe. I have a lot to prove, I am a defensive player who adapts everywhere.
I like playing on the right, I will try to grow quickly thanks to Sarri, who is a great coach. Going from a 3-man line to a 4-man line obviously involves differences, but I've already had the chance to do that in the past so it will help me. With Sarri the way of playing compared to Tudor changes completely, I'll work to be ready. National team? Of course it's every footballer's dream, I work for that too. The coach wanted me strongly, this, together with the value of Lazio, directed my choice".
