Lyon have signed Fabio Grosso with the World Cup-winning defender vowing to reproduce his international achievements on the domestic stage.

“I did my duty with my country and now I will do the same with my club,” left-back Grosso told a news conference after signing a four-year contract with Lyon for a transfer fee of €7.5m.

“I will do everything to make sure there is no resentment”, he added.

Grosso, 29, joins from Serie A champions Inter. He replaces France defender Eric Abidal, who has left for Barcelona.

“From now on it will be even more difficult to beat Lyon,” he said.

“I’m delighted to join a great club aiming to go even higher.”
