The former France striker - released by Sunderland on transfer deadline day - joins the Serie A club on a free transfer.

"I am very happy to have joined this great club," said Saha, who will wear the No 28 shirt, at a press conference on Wednesday evening.

"I trained with a great squad this afternoon. I am ready to play against Napoli at the weekend."

Lazio this week lost forward Miroslav Klose to a knee injury which will keep him out for up to two months.

And Saha, 34, is the chosen replacement despite a lean time at Sunderland, where he failed to score in five months.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
