Peruzzi to pen Lazio extension Friday 7 April, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lazio fans have today been told that Angelo Peruzzi will sign a new contract with the Stadio Olimpico outfit.

The veteran’s current deal expires at the end of this season and there were fears that the goalkeeper, should no renewal take place, would hang up his gloves.

However, Claudio Sclosa – a collaborator of the player’s agent – has reassured anxious followers that the veteran will continue to guard the Biancocelesti net.

“Peruzzi’s contract, which expires on June 30, has an option for him to stay,” he told Radio Incontro on Friday.

“It is a bit complicated to fully explain, but it basically states that the club, the player and the agent can all meet up and extend the agreement for an extra 12 months.

“I just want to tell the supporters to remain calm because I am certain that the club will not let him slip through their fingers.

“After all, in my opinion, he is the second best goalkeeper in Italy right now behind Gigi Buffon of Juventus.”

Peruzzi, born in Viterbo back in February 1970, actually started his career at city rivals Roma in 1986.

However, the best spell of his career occurred during his eight years at Juventus where he basically won everything on offer in club football.

He left the Delle Alpi for Inter in 1999 after he followed boss Marcello Lippi from Turin to the Milan giants.

Yet his San Siro stint lasted for just one season before he returned to the Italian capital with Lazio.

Peruzzi to ink new deal Monday 24 April, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Angelo Peruzzi will sign a new two-year contract with Italian club Lazio, according to reports on Monday.

The 36-year-old’s present deal expires in the summer but stories today suggest that he will prolong his career at the Olimpico.

Peruzzi, despite his age, is still one of Italy’s top ‘keepers and will travel to the World Cup with the Azzurri this summer.

He again underlined his ability on Saturday with a string of fines saves against former club Juventus in a creditable 1-1 draw.

Peruzzi’s agent is set to meet Biancocelesti officials at the end of the season where the extension will be made official.

The former Roma No 1 will also be guaranteed a future with the club once he does hang up his gloves by being handed a position within the youth sector.

Peruzzi yet to decide future Wednesday 3 May, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Angelo Peruzzi will make a decision on his future once he has returned from the World Cup Finals with Italy.

The veteran goalkeeper’s contract with Lazio expires in the summer with some suggesting that he could be preparing to hang up his gloves.

“I’ll decide whether to quit or not after Germany 2006,” the former Juventus hero said at Italy’s Borghesiana training base on Wednesday.

“As for the Finals themselves, it is clear in what order the goalkeepers will be. It is just important to be one of the three involved.

“It is of great satisfaction that I can be a part of the World Cup Finals at the age of 36, I have a real desire to do well.”

The Azzurri will kick-off their campaign in Hanover on June 12 against African opposition and Peruzzi concedes how vital that game will be for the Azzurri’s campaign.

“The most important match for us will be the first against Ghana,” added the shot-stopper known to some as Tyson.

“That tie will be the one that breaks the ice and it would obviously be ideal if we started the tournament with a win.”

Peruzzi considers Milan proposal Saturday 6 May, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Angelo Peruzzi is considering his future and today there are reports Milan have offered to give his career another boost.

The veteran goalkeeper admitted this week he was unsure of what to do next season, as his contract with Lazio expires in 2007 and he could buy himself out of that deal early at a reasonable cost.

Despite turning 36 years of age, Peruzzi has been consistently one of the best shot-stoppers in Serie A this term and proved crucial in taking the Biancocelesti to their UEFA Cup place.

He has also done enough to earn a recall to the Italy squad for the 2006 World Cup, where he’ll be the understudy to Juventus man Gianluigi Buffon.

“I’ll decide whether to quit or not after Germany 2006,” the former Juventus hero said at Italy’s Borghesiana training base on Wednesday.

Milan are looking for a new ‘keeper after Dida’s poor form this season and the fact the Brazilian is reportedly hesitating over signing a contract extension could see him pushed out in the summer.

Christian Abbiati will return from his loan spell at Juventus but, according to the latest newspaper claims, he is not set to stay at San Siro.

Ascoli’s Ferdinando Coppola will be a free agent at the end of the season and it’s claimed he has already agreed a switch to the Rossoneri.

The club wants a veteran to help show him the ropes in his first major assignment, so Peruzzi would give Milan the solidity in the short-term and help Coppola grow for the future.

The Lazio goalkeeper certainly has experience of the big clubs, as he started his career at Roma before moving on to Juventus and Inter.

Peruzzi to ink extension Thursday 11 May, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Angelo Peruzzi will sign a new contract with capital outfit Lazio, reports in Italy are suggesting on Thursday.

It’s understood that the goalkeeper has agreed a deal with the Biancocelesti which will keep him at the Olimpico until 2008.

Although Peruzzi has still to put pen to paper, the veteran 'keeper will commit himself to his hometown club.

The 36-year-old met with officials on Wednesday morning where the terms and conditions of his renewal were drawn up.

The news is a welcome boost for boss Delio Rossi who has great faith in the shot-stopper despite his age.

Italy boss Marcello Lippi, who worked with him at Juventus and Inter, is also a massive fan and will include him in his World Cup squad on Monday.

Peruzzi had previously stated that he would only decide on his future once he returned from Germany 2006 with the Azzurri.

He also admitted that he was even considering the option of hanging up his gloves after a glorious Serie A career.

Peruzzi’s decision to stay will now probably see Matteo Sereni leave the club after failing to displace the veteran in between the sticks.

Sereni, formerly of Sampdoria and Ipswich, has spent the last six months on loan at relegated Treviso.
