Igli Tare has likely entered his last season as Lazio sporting director following the arrival of Angelo Fabiani.
Things have gotten especially tense between Tare and president Claudio Lotito recently and the Albanian sporting director has been left feeling hurt. The January transfer window was a complete failure and things have been fairly slow this summer as well, frustrating the fans and Maurizio Sarri alike.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lotito has been in talks with former Salernitana sporting director Fabiani for months and the 60-year-old Italian recently agreed to join the club’s management structure.
Fabiani will work as the Primavera and Lazio Women coordinator and he’s reportedly been promised a jump up the hierarchy next year, either to general manager or possibly sporting director.
Igli Tare only has one year left on his contract in Rome and it’s clear that Lotito would never dismiss him, but he could decide to leave a year early. The Albanian sporting director was previously in charge of the Primavera, which has been in disarray for years, and Lotito’s decision to give Fabiani the responsibility instead suggests some changes on the horizon.
