Transfer News: Nicolo Casale gave an unexpected response amid the rumors linking him to a move to Lazio this summer. He admitted that he would be happy to play for coach Maurizio Sarri.
Lazio are fans of the service of the 24-year-old Italian centre-back who has been playing at Hellas Verona’s Nicolo Casale for months now and wanted to sign him last January before being told to try again this summer.
The Biancocelesti have done so and the two clubs are currently in deep discussions, and the Roma club are looking to secure his contract. Casale discussed his career growth this year under coach Igor Tudor at Hellas Verona in an interview.
“This year with the Tudor coach we are proposing again on the pitch what we have done in previous years. The way you play improves the defenders because we play all over the pitch and if you are good then you follow him all the time,” he said via Sportitalia.
“We’ve had a great year even the strikers helped us a lot the defenders because the opposing team can only attack us a little bit because our strikers press well and that has become a culture at Verona in recent years now.
Furthermore, the Italian defender commented on the rumors of his transfer to Lazio and his opinion on the situation.
“I definitely received a lot of messages and read a lot of news. A few days ago I spoke to my agent and he told me not to read any news and he would contact me when everything was concrete.
“It’s an honor to be approached by big teams, I’m waiting for them to contact me, at the moment I’m a Verona player, I grew up in Verona, I joined the youth team here, I’m back here so I can’t complain.”
Meanwhile, regarding the opportunity to play with Maurizio Sarri in Rome. The defender expressed his opinion while giving praise to the Italian coach.
“Obviously Sarri is a great coach who pays attention to the defensive phase and I want to play for him. But I’m a Verona player and right now I have to think about that.”
