Federico Marchetti is convinced his move to Lazio will lead to a return to the Italy squad.
“I am happy to have arrived here,” he smiled at the start of pre-season training with Lazio.
“I am very motivated and the President immediately convinced me to accept this proposal, especially as the side is already very competitive. I can’t wait to get started.”
It remains to be seen how long it’ll take Marchetti to rediscover his form after a year on the sidelines.
“I certainly haven’t forgotten how to save a shot, so I’m absolutely relaxed.
“The hunger to get back into the Nazionale is so strong. Right now I want to do well here, then if that leads to Cesare Prandelli giving me a call, that’s even better.”
