Hernanes commits to Lazio

Hernanes has denied reports of links with Barcelona or Milan. “There has been no contact. My head is here, at Lazio, where I am very happy.”

The Brazilian midfielder was reported to be of interest to Barça and the Rossoneri amid rumours he was struggling to settle under new Coach Vladimir Petkovic.

“I am relaxed, there has been no contact,” assured Hernanes in a Press conference after today’s 11-0 friendly win over a local side.

“My head is here, at Lazio, where I am very happy. Our objective is the Champions League, so we must be concentrated and careful that we don’t let it slip through our fingers again.”

Mauro Zarate has returned to the club after a year-long loan spell at Inter and scored a brace in today’s game.

“Zarate is a great player and if he maintains this desire then he can be very useful.”
