'I waited five years for that goal'

Lazio defender Stefan Radu revealed his delight at scoring his first goal for the club against Maribor yesterday.

The Romanian international scored the second in a 4-1 win in Slovenia, and has admitted it was a long time coming.

“I have waited five years to score a goal for Lazio,” he told “It doesn't matter who it is against, it's just important that we won and topped a tough group.

“And it's a nice gift for my new wife, as we're getting married on Friday.

“We still have a lot of important games to play – the first against Bologna on Monday that we absolutely have to win.

“We want to continue to fight on all fronts – in the League, the Coppa Italia and Europa League.”
