Mandas' Opportunity To Shine At Lazio, As He Steps Up To Defend The Team's Goal Post

March 15, 2024

It's Mandas' moment to shine at Lazio as he steps up to defend the team's goal in upcoming matches, beginning with Saturday's game against Frosinone, at least until Provedel fully recovers from his ankle sprain.

According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, Mandas will assume the starting goalkeeper role for Lazio due to Provedel's injury. The young Greek goalkeeper, often dubbed the “Greek Donnarumma,” is highly regarded in his homeland. Mandas joined Lazio from OFI Crete during the summer for a fee of one million euros plus a 10% resale clause. Since his arrival, he has impressed with his dedication and hard work, even surpassing more experienced goalkeepers like Sepe. Despite initial plans was full-time purchase definitive and immediate return on loan to the club of origin, Mandas remained at Formello, and fate rewarded his patience.

With the pressure mounting, especially given the current situation and technical challenges, Mandas can draw on his memorable debut, particularly his standout performance in the derby. Provedel's extended absence (expected to be at least a month) means Mandas will face several critical matches crucial to Lazio's season, including away fixtures against Frosinone, a double clash with Juventus (in the league and Italian Cup semi-final), and likely another derby. In his hands lies Lazio's aspiration to overcome setbacks and achieve success.
