Lazio sporting director Igli Tare was proud to be involved in the ‘Un calcio all’esclusione’ initiative.
Speaking on the sidelines of the launch event in the Vatican (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Albanian sporting director expressed his pride and happiness at the creation of the initiative and touched on the importance of his objectives.
I am very excited. It’s a great honour for us to be part of this initiative, our club is always in the front line to fight alongside people who have few opportunities.
I am an ambassador of this movement because I come from a country that has experienced great difficulty in being accepted in our world.
When we knew that we would be part of this initiative we were all immediately enthusiastic, we can give so much to the world.
The ‘Un calcio all’esclusione’ event was hosted today at the Vatican, organised by the Diocese of Rome to promote the inclusion of the Roma people as well as other marginalised groups.
A match was played this afternoon in Formello between the Pope’s team Fratelli Tutti and the World Rom Organization in order to raise funds.
