Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has decided to stay at the Biancocelesti despite the interest from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.
According to a report from Sky Sports journalist Max Bielefeld on Twitter earlier today, the German side will need to find a new sporting director in the summer after current incumbent Fredi Bobic departs.
Tare was considered the right man for the job by Eintracht Frankfurt because of his ability to create value from low-cost deals, his great knowledge of the Bundesliga and his ability to speak German.
The Albanian sporting director has decided not to pursue this appreciation and instead will continue working with Lazio for the foreseeable future.
Tare has been working as Lazio’s sporting director since 2008 and has helped the club find multiple top stars, including Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto.
He has come under fire in recent months due to some disappointing deals like the €20 million signing of Vedat Muriqi and the poor defensive reinforcements for coach Simone Inzaghi.
Bielefeld explained the situation in a Tweet, saying:
Sky Info: Igli Tare is not available as Bobic’s successor in Frankfurt. There have been talks between the two sides, but the deal will not go through. Tare would like to continue working at Lazio.
Sky Info: Igli Tare steht als Bobic-Nachfolger in Frankfurt nicht zur Verfügung. Es gab zwar Gespräche zwischen beiden Seiten, aber der Deal wird nicht zustande kommen. Tare möchte seine Arbeit bei @OfficialSSLazio fortsetzen #TransferUpdate @Sky_Marc
