Hoedt ‘can’t wait for Lazio!’

Wesley Hoedt says he will be watching every Lazio match from now until the end of the season, when he is due to join from AZ Alkmaar.

The 20-year-old defender has had his move to the Aquile confirmed today by the club as for July, and he is delighted at the news.

“I'm very happy to have signed with Lazio, I feel really great,” Hoedt has said to Lazio Style Radio 89.3.

“I'll be a Lazio player starting from next season.

“I hope to play well, I want to give everything I've got for my teammates.

“I can't wait for July to start playing! I'll try watching all of Lazio's games so I can integrate myself right off the bat. I hope Lazio can qualify for the Champions League.

“I am tall and physically strong. I still have a lot to learn from the defensive point of view, but I like to man-mark.

“I look forward to developing a lot in Italy. As for my favourite number on the back of my shirt, it's 4.”
