Brazilian star targets silverware with Lazio

Hernanes recently said foodbye to his former Sao Paulo teammates and is now looking forward to the challenges that await him in Italy.

“This is the right moment to leave [Sao Paulo],” Hernanes declared to CorrieredelloSport.

“I achieved a lot and there was little else for me to aim for.

“The choice to come to Lazio was an easy one as they always demonstrated faith in me from the moment they declared their interest.

“I still know little about the Biancocelesti but I intend to find out more in the coming weeks.

“When I recently spoke to Andre Dias he reported only positives about life at Lazio.

“Now I want to achieve success like I did in Brazil. I want to win with Lazio and enjoy a brilliant career in Italy.”
