Yesterday Pioli and the players who weren't at the World Cup in Brazil gathered for their first training before leaving for Auronzo. Lazio's new coach was surprised with a new defender. 

Edson Braafheid (30) is a former player of Twente, Bayern, Celtic and Hoffenheim. He is a free agent at the moment and will go through a test period with Lazio and if Pioli is happy with what he sees from the Dutchman he will most probably sign a contract with Lazio. 

Braafheid was part of Holland's team at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He played only 15 minutes in the final against Spain which Holland lost.
