Cristian Ledesma committed to Lazio, says his agent
Thursday 31 May 2012
Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma will remain at the club next season
despite reported interest from Manchester City, according to the
City manager Roberto Mancini is a known admirer of the 29-year-old Ledesma, who missed just one league game for Lazio this season.
"Mancini likes Ledesma," Ledesma's agent Vincenzo D'Ippolito said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "Each year this interest is renewed but Cristian has made a life choice and wants to remain in Rome.
"He is not the classic player that thinks about money above everything else.
"I believe he will end his career with the Biancoceleste.
"He is ready to be the captain of Lazio next season."
Ledesma joined Lazio in 2006 from Lecce and is under contract with the Serie A outfit until June 2015.
