The Argentina midfielder expresses his delight at his move to the Biancocelesti, hoping that the competitive environment of Serie A can help satisfy his career ambitions
Biglia spent seven years at Anderlecht, scoring 16 times in 287 games for the club, and revealed that the move was a culmination of a long time spent asking for a transfer from the Belgian champions.
"In January, I sat down with the heads at Anderlecht and they finally understood my desire to play in a more competitive league," the 27-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"After seven seasons in Belgium, I needed it. I knew about Lazio's interest, but I was in the national set-up and I did not want to talk about my future so as to avoid distractions.
"I was always very interested. I wanted to get to a more important league and a more competitive team. Lazio is perfect. I did not want to miss this train."
Biglia also spoke of overcoming his personal demons, after admitting ealier this season that he was on the brink of depression.
"In January I was close to depression and closed myself off for 10 days in a dark room. My head was bursting, I do not know how many medicines doctors have prescribed me. Anti-depressants too, but I told my wife that I would not have ever taken them.
"I realised that life does isn't just about football. But now here Lazio and Argentina are calling me, giving me a burst of energy. The train can call on you when you least expect it."
