Hoedt: 'Always a Lazio fan'

Wesley Hoedt waved goodbye after completing his transfer to Southampton. “I will always be a Lazio supporter.”

The centre-back signed a five-year contract with the Saints this evening, having arrived as a free agent in 2015.

“After two years, my time with this great club is about to end,” wrote Hoedt on Instagram.

“I arrived here as a kid and I leave as a man. I want to thank the Lazio fans for always making me feel at home. You never held back your support! Thank you for that!

“A special word for director Tare, who always believed in me and I learned a lot from him. I’d also like to thank Coach Inzaghi, all my teammates, the staff and many others I worked with over these two years!

“I will always be a Lazio supporter, so for the last time THANK YOU and always Forza Lazio.”
