Miroslav Klose Dishes on Relationship with Lazio

Lazio recently commemorated the 10th anniversary of the 2013 Coppa Italia win against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico. Former Lazio and German football legend Miroslav Klose, who was an important member of that Biancocelesti squad, shared his thoughts on the club he finished his career with.

Speaking in the mixed zone after Lazio’s match against Cremonese, Klose expressed his admiration towards Lazio.

“There’s a lot I want to share. I lived five years in the locker room with the boys and off the pitch with the fans. It was my first season outside Germany and I don’t know what else to say except that I can’t forget it. “It was a special evening, this lap before the game with the fans left me emotional and speechless.” (via Tuttomercatoweb)

Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio will feature in the UEFA Champions League next season, and Klose believes the team will be stronger with new faces.

“If they buy players, yes. The team is strong, there are many different characters, but to play in the Champions League and win a few games, they have to sign someone.”

He also dished on the idea of coaching Lazio one day, having recently concluded his stint at Austrian outfit Rheindorf Altach.

“Yes, it’s normal that you dream of returning as a coach to those teams I’ve played for. I had my first experience (at Altach, ed) now I want to find a new team and coach. Maybe one day I’ll be here”.

Klose retired from playing at Lazio with 63 goals from 170 appearances, winning the 2012/13 Coppa Italian during his stay.
