Miroslav Klose has revealed that he’s brought the Italian postal system to its knees following his move to Lazio.
Reflecting on his summer switch from Bayern Munich, the German international has spoken of a curious incident outside his own home.
“Coming to Rome was the best decision I could have possibly taken,” Klose told Bild after his strike against Atalanta at the weekend.
“Before I came here, I had never seen a postman kneel on my doorstep and kiss my feet. It’s happened to me here…
“It is amazing how crazy Italians are for their football.”
The centre-forward moved to the Stadio Olimpico on a Bosman transfer after his contract at Bayern expired.
He has proved to be an instant success by scoring nine goals in 17 Serie A games so far during this campaign.
