In an interview with lalaziosiamonoi.it, Tommaso Rocchi has stated that he feels Lazio have nothing to worry about despite receiving two heavy defeats by Juventus in recent weeks:

"I do not think Juventus was a wake up call as the championship is just getting started. Juventus has shown itself to be one of the strongest teams in recent seasons and in games, you can make mistakes and encounter difficult situations. It is a part of the game. It is only the beginning and I do not feel there are any problems there."

Rocchi insists that Lazio have not contacted him about a return and that a return to Serie A looks less likely as time goes by, forcing hi to consider a move abroad. Rocchi appears to believe that Lazio could have a secret weapon in attack:

"Keita? He certainly has quality. I've seen him - we trained together a little. It's important that he is not given too much responsibility because he is young, and I think he should be added slowly. He has potential but I don't know if he will play from the first minute. The coach is focusing on the team rather than individuals, and it is right to do so and in this context, he has value."
