The Austrian footballer is delighted to be playing with one of the most important teams in the Italian Lega Serie A.

Austria midfielder Valentino Lazaro debuted professionally in 2012 with Red Bull Salzburg.

In 2013 he was loaned to FC Liefering, but in 2017 he moved to Hertha Berlin definitely.

Now after playing in the German Bundesliga, he’s ready for the next chapter of his career, as he has just joined Internazionale Milan in the Italian Lega Serie A.

“I’m very happy to be here and to have started on this new adventure,” he told the club’s official website.

“All my teammates are fantastic, there’s a great atmosphere and we want to work hard. I feel good, everything is going very well.”

“The welcome that I’ve been given has been exceptional, everyone is giving me a hand,” he commented.

“I’m already learning a bit of Italian and in the meantime, Ivan Perisic is working as my translator.”

“Even if it’s only the second day, we’ve seen how Antonio Conte likes to work and he likes to work at the max,” Lazaro said.

“We’re working as well as we can because we have big goals and we want to do well.”

“It will be special to wear an Inter shirt for the first time, I can’t wait to take to the pitch,” he concluded.
