Djordjevic: 'I chose Lazio'

Filip Djordjevic revealed why he chose to join Lazio after his Nantes contract expires, despite “many proposals.”

The Serbian striker will be a free agent in July and already announced he has an agreement with the Biancocelesti.

“I had many proposals and I pondered them for a while, but decided to leave for Lazio,” he told the official Nantes website.

“I hope for my sake that I made the right choice.”

Djordjevic breaks away from Nantes and Ligue 1 after seven years at the Stade de la Beaujoire.

“Of course it’s hard to leave, as Nantes is a club I love dearly. It will be tough to start training with a new club and new teammates, but this is the life of a professional football player. This is how I must go forward.

“I will remain a Nantes supporter my whole life, though. I arrived here at the age of 19 and what I am today is thanks to Nantes. I adore this club and want to thank everybody.”
