Saha hopes to extend Lazio stay

Lazio striker Louis Saha has claimed that he wants to stay at Stadio Olimpico beyond the end of the season.

The French forward joined the capital club in February as a short-term replacement for the injured Miroslav Klose.

But the 34-year-old has admitted that he is enjoying his time in Serie A, despite only playing 18 minutes since his arrival.

“It is an unexpected adventure,” he told L'Equipe. “After playing a large part of my career in England it is not easy to play in a different League with a different language.

“But I am enjoying training and every minute I get on the pitch.

“There is a lot of competition here, but the season is a long one.

“I would like to extend this adventure.”
