After two so-so showings, Daichi Kamada put his stamp on the upset victory over Napoli with a potent cross-shot from distance, deciding the contest and allowing Lazio to pick up their first points in the season. The Japanese international ended up signing with the Biancocelesti after a weird summer where he was left at the altar by Milan and Atletico Madrid. Multiple sides passed on him even though he was available on a free.
According to Corriere dello Sport, he and the capital club agreed to a different and shorter contract than initially reported. After a back and forth on its length, the parties settled on just a one-year deal. However, both the Eintracht Frankfurt man and the side have an option to automatically prolong it for two more seasons at predetermined wages.
Therefore, Lazio potentially control Kamada for the next three years if they choose to. The midfielder himself wanted to be cautious since he moved to a different country. He would have likely joined Milan hadn’t they ousted director Paolo Maldini.
Kamada commented on his Lazio move after the key win.
“I’m happy to be here. I want to thank those who gave me the opportunity to wear a historic jersey like this one. I didn’t expect to wait this long. It wasn’t easy to choose a team. It was important to find one that was right for me.”
