Lazaro’s Agent: “He Understands What It Means To Play For Inter”

In an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Valentino Lazaro’s agent Max Hagmayr is convinced that his client will see more of the pitch in the future.

“I spoke with Inter for the first time in February, Conte was not the manager at that time. Ausilio had known about him for six months, then there was a meeting with Conte where he explained how he wanted him to play: that meeting was crucial to make him wear this shirt.”
