Klose: 'I was looking for Lazio'

Miroslav Klose is overjoyed at his first six months in a Lazio jersey. “This club is what I had been looking for.”

The German international hitman joined from Bayern Munich in a free transfer and has had a sensational start to his Serie A career, scoring nine goals in 15 games plus two in five Europa League appearances.

“I am truly happy in Rome, as Lazio were what I had been looking for,” said the 33-year-old.

“In this period I trained really hard and this is why I scored so many goals. I feel good psychologically and physically, while I get on perfectly with Coach Edy Reja.

“I don’t want to give myself compliments, though, because I still really want to improve. If the fans have nicknamed me Kaiser than I’m happy, as such an important name means I’m doing well.

“Euro 2012 is the big objective I have in mind for next year, but it’s not the only one.”
