"I do regret leaving in bitter circumstances, but I no longer wanted to stay at Lazio. The President's plans weren't clear and I was not able to give my best. I sought other motivation despite the great affection I feel for the fans."
Cesar is not the only player to have left Lazio in a row with patron Claudio Lotito over contracts, as Paolo Di Canio and Angelo Peruzzi also protested.
"He looked after the interests of his business and I looked after mine. There were a few misunderstandings, but now we have clarified everything," assured Cesar in the Corriere dello Sport.
