Record-breaking Radu with 402 Lazio games

Stefan Radu becomes the player with the most appearances ever in the Lazio shirt. ‘It will be an exciting and historic afternoon’.

The record-breaking 34-year-old will play his 402nd match against Spezia and the former Romania international will overtake Beppe Favalli’s record with the Aquile.

Radu moved to Lazio in January 2008 and has spend the last 13 years with the Biancocelesti, but his deal expires in June.

Now, he’s looking forward to the ‘historic’ game against Spezia and knows it will be a difficult match.

“It will be an exciting and historic afternoon and match, 402 games will help me overtake Beppe Favalli, but leaving my personal record alone, we will have a great match today,” he told Lazio Style Channel.

“It will be a very difficult match. We have analysed them well these days. They’re an organised team, they have a good game and in the first leg they gave us many problems.”

Radu said Lazio are getting used to having many players travelling for international duty.

“We are used to the stops for the national teams, we have many players who travel,” he continued. “It’s a minor problem for everyone, not just for us.”
