Klose undecided about life after Lazio

Miroslav Klose, who said farewell to Lazio on Sunday, says he is still unsure about where he intends to ply his trade next season.

The German striker ended a five-year stay in Rome with a rare penalty goal in his side’s 2-4 loss to Fiorentina at Stadio Olimpico. This brought the curtain down on a very poor season for The Biancocelesti, who failed to repeat last season’s Champions League qualification exploits.

Klose, who was linked with a move to the Unites States earlier this year, gave no indication what his plans may be now that his contract has come to an end.

“I haven’t decided yet,” he told Mediaset Premium. “I told my manager that I wanted to end the season well, then we’ll see what’s on the table.

“I am still having fun and feel that I am in good shape, so I want to continue scoring goals.”

Klose found the net on only eight occasions in 25 appearances in all competitions this season. This could mean that a move to either a lower division or a less competitive league would be the most likely move for him.

Talking about scoring in his final appearance, the German was appreciative of the opportunity his teammates gave him.

“It was weird, as I don’t usually take penalties,” he added. “But all my teammates insisted I had to take it.

“They all put pressure on me! At least it went well in the end.”
