Lazio striker Filip Djordjevic has revealed that he’s been enjoying life as an Aquilotti player and admitted that he dreams of scoring a goal in the Derby della Capitale one day.

The 27-year-old, who arrived at the capital city club from Ligue 1 side Nantes over the summer, has scored six goals in his 14 Serie A appearance for the Biancocelesti this season and he insists that his main objective is to do whatever it takes to help the Italian side succeed in their goal of returning to European play.

Djordjevic spoke to Lazio Style ChannelĀ on Tuesday about his time at Lazio thus far and the club’s will to do better as the campaign progresses, while also reaching out to his fans and asking them to follow him on his new Twitter page.

“Starting today I am officially on Twitter, for the first time,” said the Serbian international. “I’m happy to be able to have more direct contact with my fans.

“I want to greet all of the fans and I hope everyone follows me on my only official Twitter page @FilipDjordjevic. I hope to get a lot of followers because there will be a lot of surprises on my page, already starting this week.

“Today is December 9, like my shirt number, so it’s a good day for me to start. I would even like fans to tell me how they would like me to start celebrating my goals.

“Right now the will to win is very important for Lazio, our 2-1 win over Parma was a very difficult match on a bad pitch, but we hadn’t won for a month so the desire to earn a victory was very important.

“I played well against Parma, it was my kind of game. I even want to be the first defender and prove to everyone that we must not give up anything and that each ball is decisive.

“Every game we win gives us more confidence, we hope to continue like this in our next match against Atalanta.

“The differences between France and Italy in football? There are many differences. In France there is more work from a physical aspect, while in Italy there is a lot of attention to the tactical side of the game.

“My goals are to score as much as possible and to help the team win, we want to reach Europe.

“Who would I give the Ballon d’Or to this year? Manuel Neuer, he won the World Cup with Germany and he deserves it.

“I like everything about living in Rome and playing for Lazio, I’m very happy here. Everyone is nice to me here. I like to describe the people here as sensational.

“Who am I closest to in the team? I’d say with Dusan Basta and Senad Lulic, because I spend so much time with them and we speak the same language.

“One of my personal ambitions this season is to score in the derby, I think it’s something everyone dreams about. I would like to have a good season but it’s more important if the team does well.

“I had signed my contract with Lazio quite a bit before I arrived at the club and I watched every game last season, so I was able to adapt quickly.”
