Vavro: 'Follow in Skriniar's footsteps'

New Lazio defender Denis Vavro is relishing his first Italian football experience. “I want to follow in the footsteps of Milan Skriniar.”

The 23-year-old centre-back completed the transfer from FC Copenhagen for €10.5m plus bonuses this week.

“I really like Italian football and I am satisfied with the move. I’d like to start regularly and help the team win trophies,” Vavro told

“I said in the past that I want to follow in the footsteps of Skriniar and that is what I am doing.”

Fellow Slovakia international defender Skriniar shot to fame at Sampdoria and was then consolidated at Inter.
