Igli Tare set to leave Lazio


Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is looking ever more likely to leave the club this summer, with Angelo Fabiani his prospective replacement. The former Albanian interntional has been with the Biancocolesti for 15 years, having featured for them as a player, before taking on the directors role in 2009.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Tare’s contract is set to expire in the summer and he will not be renewing for another season. The newspaper claim that no ‘twists in the tail’ are expected, with just the official announcement to be made, which is being postponed until the end of the championship to avoid possible tensions with repercussions on the team.

Speaking with Sky Sport Italia on Monday, Tare said: “My contract is coming to an end and we have to evaluate together with the president. It is right that the best decision for me and for the club is made.”

Gazzetta suggest that there may have been tensions with Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri which have eventually prompted Tare’s decision to leave the club, writing that their styles may have been incompatible.

Lazio’s summer transfer market moves are expected to pass on to Angelo Fabiani, the sporting dircetor of Salernitana, with a suggest that Fabiani could also take over as general manager but remain the point of reference for the market.
