Mauro Zarate’s agent insists his client’s move to Lazio was correct
“Lazio bought him and that is it,” Zarate’s agent Sergio Zarate told tuttomercatoweb.it. “They (Al-Sadd) can say whatever they want but I see no problem of any nature.
“Lazio did what it said on the contract, there was a buy-out clause and they paid it. I cannot understand this behaviour, we should ask Al-Sadd the reasons behind it.”
Zarate moved to Lazio officially on July 9 2008 after the payment of 20million euros to exercise a clause to terminate his contract. Sky Italia are reporting Al-Sadd have been angered by reports Lazio allegedly handed the money for the buy-out clause directly to the player to make Zarate want to leave the Qatar club.
