Luis Alberto confirms he is leaving Lazio in the summer


Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto has confirmed that he is set to leave the club in the summer. The Spanish international made the important announcement about his future following the match against Salernitana. Speaking to DAZN after the game, Alberto not only reflected on the season and the team’s performance but also shed light on his future plans.

Reflecting on the season, Alberto expressed, “It’s been a somewhat complicated year. We needed to win, today we needed the three points, and we needed to send a signal.”

Regarding the fans’ reactions, particularly the jeers, Alberto acknowledged, “Jeers? It’s normal, the championship is not going well. We also lost the derby.”

He then touched upon Lazio’s Champions League aspirations, stating, “In football, nothing is certain. It’s complicated, but we need to keep a clear head for the remaining matches.”

However, the most significant revelation came when Alberto discussed his future with the club. He stated, “Project? I don’t know, but I know that this is my last season here. I don’t want to take another euro from Lazio; I’ve already requested the termination of my contract. I believe the time has come for me to step aside.”

After the match, Alberto took to Instagram to express gratitude towards the fans. He wrote, “I am grateful for the outpouring of affection. My relationship with Lazio fans is excellent and it’s a source of pride. I thank them for everything they have done for me over the years at the club, especially the fans in the Curva Nord and the Tribuna Tevere who have always supported me. You will always be in my heart. I will continue to work hard and give my all on the field until the last minute of the last match, as I have always done.”

Alberto’s announcement has sparked discussions about his future destination and the implications for Lazio’s midfield. With his departure looming, the club will undoubtedly be on the lookout for a suitable replacement.
