Matuzalem thrilled with Lazio move

Lazio signing Francelino Matuzalem is delighted with his loan move from Real Zaragoza.

"After three years in Ukraine and last season at Zaragoza, Lazio is a great opportunity for me," Matuzalem said at his unveiling.

"I'm happy to wear the shirt of such a prestigious club. My first day of training was great.

"I am only here for a year on loan, but I will do all I can to stay here longer.

"I want to recover the joy of playing football again after a difficult year when I suffered with a knee injury. I want to get back to the top of my game.

"At Lazio we are hoping to win all games. The aim is to finish high up in the table and I want to win back my place in the national side."
