In an interview with BTVRight-back Valentino Lazaro revealed that he was already at Estádio da Luz, nine years ago, with the Austrian youth team and prepared the fans with an 110% commitment!
“The first time I was in Portugal was nine years ago, when I played for the youth team [Áustria] And I came to Estádio da Luz. I was in the museum [Cosme Damião]I saw Eagle Flight for the first time and since then I’ve been watching the club. After nine years, I am very happy at the club. The first contact was made a few years ago, but now interest in Benfica is more consistent. It was the right time and I saw that the interest continued to be very strong, that people really wanted to count on me, it’s like family and the feeling has always been strong, so I had no doubts that I wanted to come to Benfica,” the Austrian international confirmed.
For Lazaro, who will wear the 22nd shirt, what matters is that I play matches and win titles: “I can give and promise that I will always give one hundred and ten percent, that’s what I want to give to the club, show my qualities and help the team win titles. Winning titles is what all players want. The fans want these victories too, we want to see the fans happy, I hope they come back to the stadium strong, as I saw nine years ago how they managed to push this team. I am so happy and want to feel this connection! Now, in the first days and weeks there will be an integration period, but I want to show my skills, I am very excited, I want to help the team win matches, show that determination, win matches and titles.”
