It was a pleasant surprise.
Hernanes returned from Brazil one day prior to his scheduled arrival.
After completing issues related to bureaucracy at the Italian Embassy in his native country, he took the first flight back to Rome.
He immediately went to Formello and joined his new team mates for his first training.
Reports suggest that he is in a very good physical form and ready for action. Below are some images from his first training with Lazio. As expected, he is usually accompanied by his co-patriots Dias and Matuzalem.
