Nico Lopez Praises Totti, Udinese

Uruguayan striker Nico Lopez, who joined Udinese in the summer on co-ownership, praised the work of his new teammates and Toto Di Natale as well as Francesco Totti.

“I’m glad to be here. Initially it took me a while to acclimate, but I’m fine now and I find it really great here. This team is made ​​up of many good players and so many good people, who helped me to blend-in better. I know that there are many of us, but my goal is to work hard and always find myself ready. Unfortunately the Italian Cup is done, but now we focus on the league because we are doing well. We aim to get to 40 points first and then we’ll see. The Italian championship is one I’ve always liked a lot and I’ve always wanted to play in such an important competition. I’ve never had any particular idols. I’d like to become a champion. Going elsewhere? Udinese is where I am for now, I want to grow here.”

“Totti and Di Natale? They are two very important players in the history of Italian football. I have always observed carefully what they do in training and I hope to steal a few secrets of the trade.”
