Toma Basic: "Lazio Is My Only Choice"

August 27, 2021

The new Lazio acquisition, Toma Basic, presented itself full and willing.  The 1996 class spoke to Sportske Novosti where he commented on his transfer to Lazio: 

"I am very happy and proud to have arrived in a club of this size. I have been waiting for this moment for a year and a half, I can not believe it has passed like this. A long time. When the negotiation broke down at the time of the lockdown I didn't despair, I clung even more to training because I knew I just had to keep playing my best and that a new opportunity would come soon."

"There was a lot of talks too with other clubs, but Lazio has always remained my first choice. When I left Hajduk for Bordeaux, it was a great opportunity for me. I now likewise think Lazio is way ahead of Bordeaux in terms Lazio is part of the group of the greatest European clubs. This is an excellent basis for new career steps in my opinion."

"The interview with Sarri?  greeted and asked me immediately if I was ready.  I told him yes, I could train at full speed right away.  I didn't come just to be an ordinary player, I want to become an important part of Lazio and I've been preparing for this moment for a long time."

"City of Rome?  I haven't visited it yet, I've only seen the hotel and Formello.  Seeing the field was exciting.  I will visit Rome city and I am sure it is beautiful as everyone talks about it.  What I have been able to hear about the city so far somehow reminds me of Split.  All those football stories, the fanaticism of the Lazio fans.  All this makes me very happy because I know how much I enjoyed it in such an environment as in Split."

So, welcome to Lazio, Toma!
