Igli Tare was the first to speak at the press conference;

"We always try to fie
ld the best players for Lazio. We seek accomplished players who will bring something important to the team. We have been following both Santiago and Edson for some time, they have personality and their experience will be very useful to us".

"When there is a change of club for a player, and also our coach is new, it will take some time of getting used to. We are patient. The team knows this and what to expect this season. We have trained for this. To the fans I can promise that we will always give our best for you. I hope to get back into their hearts but it also depends on the results, if we do well it will definitely be easier", concluded Tare.

The press then turned their attentions to Santiago Gentiletti and Edson Braafheid;

"When you come to a big club like Lazio the expectations are big. At San Lorenzo the club had never won the Copa Libertadores until this past season and we became obsessed with winning it. I believe we can do the same at Lazio. It will not happen from day one but the squad here is very good, as is the coach and the managers. I am excited and proud to be here and am looking forward to the start of the season", stated Gentiletti.

"I am very happy to be here at Lazio after a period of difficulty and I am thankful for this chance. This is a great opportunity to reignite my career and prove myself and to the club as they believe in me. I will take this with both hands. I want to return to my previous level and win something with this club", stated Braafheid.
