"I always try to prove my commitment to this shirt on the pitch, not only with words", says Cristian Ledesma, the Lazio vice-captain, who has declared that he wants to finish his career in the Biancocelesti. The player shared his thoughts about the game against Milan, his new teammates and Thursdays match against Vaslui on his official website cristianledesma.com

The 28 year-old was impressed with his side's performance against Milan, "The first game of the season is always difficult, especially if you face a team like Milan. We played well and got a good result against them".

Ledesma also has high praise for Miroslav Klose, who made his league debut for Lazio on Friday, "I knew he is a great player, but after seeing him in training every day, I realised that there is so much more in his game than his scoring ability". However, one of the new boys, who wasn't so impressive against Milan was Senad Lulic. Ledesma defended him, "For me, Lulic seems to be a good player, but he is still trying to blend into the team. He needs time". And continuing about his new teammates, Ledesma also thinks that Lorik Cana will eventually become a good addition to the team, "Like all newcomers, Cana is a good player and will improve our team".

Finally, Cristian is already looking forward to the Europa League game against Vaslui on Thursday, "We care a lot about that competition and we want to do well there".
