Lazio Star Corroborates Rumours About Saudi Interest

Ciro Immobile confirmed to have received rich offers from Saudi Arabia, but he ultimately decided to stay put at Lazio. The marksman admitted to having given some thought about leaving to Sky after the loss to Lecce (via Virgilio).

“The bids made me waver. In the end, I didn’t accept because I wanted to continue here to erase the past season, which didn’t go well for me on a personal level. I wish to be fit physically and mentally to help the team.”

Immobile quickly opened his seasonal tally in the first round but missed a sitter in the second half that could have potentially sealed the game. Afterward, Lecce staged an impressive quick comeback to come away with the upset victory.

“It’s a shame because we could have scored the second goal. Wladimiro Falcone pulled off an incredible save. The episodes make the difference. This match is worrying because we need to do something extraordinary to improve on what we achieved in the past campaign. These small details become huge since they can easily overturn the result. The same thing already happened in the past. It means that what we have done so far isn’t enough.”

Lazio and Immobile will have the opportunity to bounce back in the second matchday against Genoa at home.
