Stefan De Vrij is delighted with his move to Lazio.

The former Feyenoord skipper joined Lazio last week.

"He believes that with Lazio he can become the best defender in the world," agent Alex Kroes told Tuttomercatoweb.

"Italy is the country where they defend better than anywhere else, which is another reason why he chose to come here.

"De Vrij wanted to learn the Italian art of defending."
