Lazio Prepared to Move On from Sports Director Tare

Lazio are testing the waters to onboard a few officials, as Igli Tare might leave the club after 13 years. The exec has an expiring contract and often butted heads with Maurizio Sarri. President Claudio Lotito could take advantage of his status and part ways quietly, Il Messaggero informs (via Radiosei).

Things have started moving in such direction after a meeting between the president and the coach. While the boss didn’t pose the ousting of the director as a diriment condition, he suggested that they weren’t on great terms. They don’t see eye to eye technically, so their visions on the transfer market diverge. In addition, they have very different characters.

Lazio made a hail-Mary attempt for Cristiano Giuntoli. He will head to Juventus if Napoli let him go in a reasonable amount of time. The director wishes to move on regardless after the Scudetto. The Biancocelesti hope Aurelio De Laurentiis could be more lenient if he didn’t join his archrivals.

Lotito mulling some alternatives since the primary one is a long shot. For instance, Pasquale Foggia, who spent the last few years at Benevento. In that event, Angelo Fabiani, who’s already at the club after previously leading Salernitana, would become the CEO.

According to La Nazione (via Calciomercato), the Biancocelesti expressed interest in Pietro Accardi, who worked with Sarri at Empoli. However, Napoli shortlisted him should Giuntoli indeed depart. It’d be tough to win the race in such scenario.

Our Take on Lazio and Tare

He’s been living off the Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s coups for way too long, and their recent windows have been very underwhelming. It’s fair for the president to side with the coach in this case.
