Lanzafame: 'I'll make it at Brescia'

Brescia's new signing Davide Lanzafame believes he will become a protagonist at the Rigamonti for the remainder of the season.

The 23-year-old arrives on loan from Juventus where he had publicly blamed Gigi Del Neri for a lack of regular first team football.

Speaking at his official unveiling, Lanzafame said: "Cesena had come looking for me, but Brescia convinced me.

"They are an ambitious club with a team that plays well. I had little space at Juve.

"Here there is everything needed to survive in Serie A and I can get back to being a protagonist."

Brescia director of sport Gianluca Nani hinted at Lanzafame's move becoming permanent in the summer.

"We also spoke with Juve about a possible transfer at the end of the season," he noted.

"I would also like to thank Palermo who co-own his rights and said 'yes' to the operation."
