The 36 year old center back played a part of Lazio’s 0-0 draw against Turkish side Trabzonspor yesterday in the Europa League.
“I’m happy to be back, I’ve missed the pitch for three months. We didn’t concede a goal, it’s a positive. But we had to win, and instead we have to settle for second place [in the group]. We can, however, still do well.”
“We always train to the max, but in the field, you are unable to give that extra mile because we lack confidence” he concluded.
Lazio will await their Europa League fate in the Round of 32.
