New Lazio signing Ousmane Dabo has described his time at Manchester City as a "nightmare".

Dabo didn't always manage to get along with his teammates, as he threatened legal action against former City player Joey Barton following a training ground incident that left him unconscious.

"I went to turn around, he hit me and knocked me out. He is a despicable coward, it wasn't a fair fight," Dabo told L'Equipe back in May.

The Frenchman was also happy to be back in Serie A and to be wearing the Biancocelesti jersey.

"When I learned I was once again a Lazio player, I was very moved and excited," confessed the midfielder.

"I really didn't expect to be back here. I walked out of a nightmare to come into a dream. I couldn't be happier."
