Hernanes bid his biancocelesti fans adieu through Lazio Style Radio, after Inter and Lazio agreed on a €20 million price tag for the 28 year old Brazilian.
Hernanes looked back on his time at Lazio: “When I got here my objective was to give Lazio my all. I made my decision. I thank president Lotito, coach Reja, my team mates and all the boys at Lazio. Erika, my wife knows my ambition, to accomplish great things”.
Then, the Brazilian makes a special dedication to Lazio fans: “The fans loved me in an incredible way. It’s been a difficult day, I wasn’t able to sleep. Thank you, Lazio fans, I will have you in my heart, always. I knew that they loved me, but not this much”.
Hernanes leaves Lazio after four successful years garnished by 37 goals, 16 assists and a Coppa Italia victory in 2012-13.
