New Lazio signing Martin Caceres: Southampton helped me

New Lazio signing Martin Caceres is delighted with his move to Rome.

Caceres has joined Lazio from Hellas Verona.

“Maybe destiny was calling," Caceres admitted in his Press conference.

“I scored my first Serie A goal against Lazio. I'm happy to be here and to discover this team. I thank Verona for the past six months, I rediscovered myself after the adventure in England [with Southampton].

“I played a lot of matches and scored a few goals, now I hope to get started here soon.

“There's a good group here, I've had a great time over the past few days. These are straightforward lads. They're having a great season and I hope we can continue like this.

“What does Lazio represent for me? A relaunch, and a very important Italian team. I'm in good shape, and Lazio are in a position they deserve to be in.

“I've known [Coach Simone] Inzaghi for some time, and my first impressions of him are good. I'll have a great relationship with him, as happened in the past with all my other Coaches."
