Zarate: Lazio for the podium

Mauro Zarate firmly believes that Lazio have what it takes to finish on the 'front row' this season.

The 23-year-old Argentine striker got his side back to winning ways at the weekend, scoring a slightly controversial goal in a 2-0 win against Napoli, which brought Lazio's two-game losing streak to an end.

The Biancocelesti currently lie second in Serie A, just a single-point behind League leaders Milan after the opening 12 matches this season.

Speaking at a local charity event, Zarate said: "We will stay in the top places in the table until the end."

When a number of little children demanded that he score in the next derby against Roma, which is likely to be in the Coppa Italia, Zarate smiled: "They have ordered me to do it, but the important thing is that Lazio wins."
