Ulisse Savini, one of the agent’s for the 18 year old Keita Baldé Diao (the other being Nunzio Marchione), spoke to Radiosei about the excellent start to the season for his client.
”I am pretty amazed by how well Keita has started this season, his first season in a first team squad".
"It is not so much for the technical qualities as we already knew he had plenty of this, but more so of the approach the young lad has taken. He is always enterprising, fights for every ball, and if he loses the ball he is the first to fall back on defense”.
Savini believes Keita’s best game for Lazio so far was the one against Atalanta in Bergamo; “The final result was not positive for the team but when he entered the pitch he fought like a lion. He showed character which is not often seen in players of his young age”.
The agent concluded by saying that he and Marchione knew that upon the player being signed by Lazio from the Barcelona youth team that the club had got themselves a very good buy. He hopes that his clients good vain of form continues against Parma this weekend.
