Kezman confirms that Milinkovic-Savic will be staying at Lazio
Former Chelsea striker and Serbian legend Mateja Kezman claims that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is not going to leave Lazio in the January transfer window. Kezman, who happens to be the agent of Milinkovic-Savic, also stated that the 23-year-old is totally committed to the club.
Milinkovic-Savic was linked with a move away from Lazio during the off-season in the summer, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan believed to be the potential suitors.
However, Kezman made it clear that the 23-year-old is enjoying his life at his current club and has a lot of respect for the fans.
“Sergej is really, really happy at Lazio,” Kezman told lalaziosiamonoi.it. “He showed how much he loves the club and fans by choosing to stay, despite having many offers.
“All young players have ups and downs. He had a tough start to the season, but game by game he’s improved, getting back to his usual levels in the last month.
“People often forget that he’s not a striker. His job isn’t to score. He does a lot for the team during a game.
“He won’t leave Lazio this month, that’s 100 per cent certain. It’s not right to talk about him possibly moving away every time.
“He has a long contract with the Biancocelesti, he’s happy with them and above all, he’s not for sale this month.
“We must respect [Claudio] Lotito as the President. Lazio are also a great club, with all due respect for other sides.”
