A former striker at Lazio speaks about a current one. Marcelo Salas, now retired spoke to Sport 24 Mana Mana about Miroslav Klose:

"Klose is great. Even for the national team he has proven to be a true goalscorer. I am glad that he is at Lazio, and is doing well. It is hard to compare the two of us. Klose is a very good team player and he always score goals when his team need it the most, for example when he helped winning the derby."

Salas still remembers his time in Rome, and all the great players he has played with: "With Veron I enjoyed the best time of my career. He is such a great player. Off the field we do not talk much. Almeyda was also a great player, and is a good friend of mine. I did not expect to see him as a coach. He is doing well with River and hopefully he can get them promoted back to the highest level. Personally, I do not want to coach because I want to have more free time to spend with my family."

Marcelo Salas is also hugely respected in his home country and still follows the Chilean National Team: "It is a very difficult time for the national team, and the players have shown they are not mature enough. Now there is two important games that has to be won. I support coach Claudio Borghi 100%."
