The new season will start in just a few hours and one of the players to make his league debut tonight in the Lazio shirt this evening is Miroslav Klose.

Before the start of the season, the 33 year-old striker spoke to a German news portal Weltonline. "I think that it's good for us to start the season with such an important game", Klose began. Talking about his personal goals in the next season, he said, "I want a season without injuries".

Klose, who now has scored 62 goals for Germany national team, told the reporters that he already loves life in Italy, "Italy is as beautiful as I imagined. The quality of life here is great. I have easily adapted to lifestyle in Italy". However, he added that people are a little bit different in Germany, "People in Germany are very punctual, nothing should be delayed even for 5 minutes. While in Italy people are punctual as well, but they are more flexible".

The former Bayern man feels more relaxed in the new country, but also admits that it wasn't easy to move on after so many years in the Bundesliga, "Life here is more relaxed, but it wasn't easy for me to move on after 13 years in the German league. But I think I can learn a lot from my new experience here - a sense of calmness and a different way of life that I want to find".
