  01/09/2012: Lazio invitation to Gazza
email print  
Gazza will forever be in the hearts of Lazio after his 3 years spent in Rome. He will mostly be remembered for his late equaliser in he Rome Derby in 1992 which earned him a place in Lazio folklore.

Following Lazio being drawn against another of Gazza's former teams Tottenham, Lazio have invited the midfield magician to Rome to watch the match.

Lazio general manager Maurizio Manzini said: "He is a mythical figure for Laziali and is still very popular in Italy. I remember when the Atalanta ultras unveiled a banner with a big bottle of beer on it saying 'this is for you Gazza'."

"Tottenham are a great team which Lazio know very well and we are very familiar with White Heart Lane from the time we had Gazza. I hope we will have the chance to see in London and we will invite him to the match in Rome."
