Lulic: 'Lazio need Lucas Leiva'

Senad Lulic is excited about the imminent arrival of Lucas Leiva to Lazio. “He’s a great player with experience and we need someone like him.”

The midfielder is expected to fly in tomorrow before undergoing a medical on Monday in his €5.5m transfer from Liverpool.

“Lucas Leiva is a great player with a lot of experience,” Lulic told Mediaset Premium.

“We have so many young players here that we need someone like him. We await him with open arms and hope he arrives soon.

“We want to challenge for the top places, the other sides have reinforced and we will try to do our best. It will be difficult to repeat last term, as we know what awaits us, but we’re working well and hope to achieve our targets.

“There are regrets, for example the Coppa Italia Final defeat to Juventus. We didn’t deserve to lose the last three or four games in Serie A either, but at the end of the day it remained a great season.

“This time we’ve got the Europa League to contend with too and that means more games in the fixture list. Of course there are little arguments in every squad, but the important thing is to sort them out as soon as possible.”
