Angola International defender Bastos Jaccinto Quissanga who recently joined Serie A side Lazio from Russian UEFA Champions League campaigners Rostov, is eager to face Nigeria youth international Sadiq Umar when Lazio clash with Roma in the Rome derby.

Bastos,24, played in both legs of Rostov’s Champions League qualifying victory over Anderlecht, but opt out of the tie against Ajax to push through his move to Lazio.

” We joked about it a lot, Bastos and Sadiq Umar will be tasty you know, Bastos loves the idea and it can only happen in the Rome derby” reveals agent Alexander Bondarenko to Owngoalnigeria.com

Bondarenko is a partner to the Nigerian intermediary of Sadiq Umar, Mohammed Lawal. The duo were instrumental in making Bastos swap Russia for Italy.

He reportedly cost Lazio a fee in the region of €6.5million.
