ROME - German striker Miroslav Klose looks
set to end his playing career in Italy after signing for Lazio,
the Serie A club confirmed.
The former Bayern Munich player, who turned 33 on Thursday,
celebrated with a reported two-year deal after leaving the
Bundesliga side on a free transfer.
"Miroslav Klose is a Lazio player," read a statement on the
Rome club's official website late on Wednesday.
"The president, the staff and all the fans would like to wish
him many happy returns."
Klose, who scored just one league goal in his fourth season
with the German giants, will undergo a medical in Rome on
Thursday before being presented to the media.
In a glittering career at international level, the
Poland-born forward has scored 61 goals in 109 appearances for
Germany, notching up four goals in South Africa last year to
bring his World Cup goal-tally to 14, one behind record-holder
Ronaldo of Brazil.
