Carrozzieri ready for new start with Lecce

Morris Carrozzieri cannot wait to begin his Lecce adventure, claiming this is a new start for his career and life.
The central defender tested positive for cocaine in April 2009 which saw him banned from all football-related activities for two years. With the ban over, Carrozzieri has moved from Palermo to the Salentini.
At his presentation, the 30-year-old claimed he wanted to continue his career for a number of years as reported by Tuttomercatoweb:
“A while ago I was in Lecce for a charity match, evidently it was destiny…I am glad and enthusiastic to land at Lecce. At this point for me it is important to return and to begin a new life.
“I want to do well because I would like to continue playing for another four or five years. I do not feel like a finished player and I say that I can still give my best in Serie A, but not with words but actions.”

Lecce avoided relegation by five points but accumulated the worst goals conceded record in Serie A last season, with a total of 66 conceded.
Carrozzieri says one player does not change everything and that the team will need to work hard.
“The Giallorossi defence was beaten the most last season? Certainly a single player cannot resolve all the problems; you attack and defend with eleven.
“I know Coach [Eusebio] Di Francesco and while I have not played with any of my new teammates, I had a chance to know as opponents [Davide] Di Michele and [Daniele] Corvia.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
