Vavro: "Long Time Ago, I Think: 'Ok, I'm Going To Quit Football' And I'm Not Fit To Be On The Bench Or In The Stands, I Will Play For Lazio Until My Contract Expires, I Will Make Money And Then I Will Stop Playing Football"

Denis Vavro has stressed in an interview that his difficult time at Lazio has affected his mental health. The center-back is even distraught and is considering an early retirement from football.

Slovakian center-back Denis Vavro joined Lazio from FC Copenhagen for €10m in July 2019 as one of sporting director Igli Tare's riskier signings. But that didn't pay off as Vavro made just 21 appearances for the Italian capital in two and a half seasons, failing to impress Simone Inzaghi and Maurizio Sarri.

The center-back later admitted that his bitter experience with the Biancoceleste almost cost him a permanent exit from football.

"Long time ago, I think: 'OK, I'm going to quit football' and I'm not fit to be on the bench or in the stands, so I told my agent I don't like playing football anymore, I was thinking too much. Tired ' he said, as quoted by LaLazioSiamoNoi.

"I told my family: 'I will play for Lazio until my contract expires, I will make money and then I will stop playing football'. I don't like football, I don't watch games, I just watch movies on television."

The 26-year-old returned to his former club Copenhagen in January and has quickly become a first-team regular. He's played the full 90 minutes in every possible game since his arrival.

His loan deal included an option to buy from The Aquile, and the Slovak center-back no doubt has high hopes, with the Danish club ready to activate that option this summer.
