Lazini’s put family first when making ‘desert’ move


Manuel Lazini’s world travels look to be coming to an end at the end of this season with a permanent eight million euros move to Wet Ham.

The Buenos Aires-born 22 year old had moved over eight thousand miles from Argentina to Abu Dhabi but many have wondered why such a talented youngster would be plying his trade in the desert at such a young age before moving to the east end.

 ClaretandHugh has learned from sources close to the player that it was for the love of his family who had, we understand, hit some financial problems.

He said: “The circumstances are unclear but the family hit some trouble in that area and with a signing on fee of a couple of million euros involved, Manu was in a position to help.

“He had no hesitation in moving over there but now it looks as though he is going to become a big player with West Ham over the next few years.

“As you have reported, the contact is in place with his club Al Jazira and if he continues as he’s started with the Irons,  a permanent move looks nailed-on.

“When you consider that he was unfit when he arrived here his progress over the start of the season has been sensational and there’s a lot more to come.

“He made a short term sacrifice on his career to take on some family responsibilities and deserves everything he gets from here.”

  1. Family man joining a family team,I can understand now why he chose them instead of us,
    But he should earn enough with us now to keep his family happy for life,
    I hope we can gat him to sign a 5 year contract.
    Last month with the exchange rate for Euro was .10 higher it would make sense to do the deal now before the pound gets stronger,the board could save themselves 1/2 million
