Giancarlo Gallifuoco, an Australian midfielder from Italian parents has spent two weeks at Formello. The young Australian who is 17 years old, has been also offered a contract by Chievo.

"Both teams have offered me contracts," said Gallifuoco. "I know I will have more chances of making the first team with Chievo, but you cannot also not think about Lazio !" he added.

Explaining the situation Gallifuoco said: "I am very happy about how things went. I was staying for only one week but Lazio then asked me to stay for another extra week. At the end of that week they offered me a contract, and now the decision is mine to take." 

Then Gallifuoco went on to describe how it felt to be at Formello:
"To see Zarate, Brocchi, and Bresciano was wonderful. The way they deal with the ball is different from others." 

Finally some words about Bresciano and his future: "I have a very good relationship with Mark, he is a nice guy, and he told me that he thinks I am a good player and that I should stay in Italy. I will think about all this and will decide my future in the coming days."
