Saha - From Mackemland To Rome!

Former Toon striker Louis Saha was presented as a Lazio player on Wednesday evening, joining the Italian club as a free agent following the termination of his contract with Sunderland.

Well he wasn't really on our books - more a loan signing - but he is still remembered for a stunning goal against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup.

Saha failed to make a Premier League start for Sunderland

The Paris-born 34-year-old has spent almost his entire career in England, representing six different Premier League teams since moving to Newcastle back in 1999.

Louis Saha: "I am very happy to be here at this big club.

"I have found a great group and working with them will be a real pleasure for me. I want to give my best. I am here to help the team during this injury (to Miroslav Klose) and I'm happy to do it. I know on Saturday it will be a big game against Napoli and I am here to help.

"In life you must always try to give your best. I am a very competitive person, so the important thing is to always do better. This is a great team and a great country. I am happy to be here."

Saha will wear the No. 28 shirt.
