Tudor Future in Jeopardy – Sarri Linked With Shock Lazio Return

The future of Lazio coach Igor Tudor remains in the air, while Maurizio Sarri is linked with a sensational return to the Italian capital.

The Croatian joined the Biancocelesti in March to replace the Italian veteran tactician who decided to resign amidst declining results coupled with personal tragedies. The 48-year-old did fairly well, but his style of play requires a major squad overhaul, one that the management isn’t too keen to pull off.

So according to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedullà, Lazio have summoned Tudor to Formello for decisive talks over his future. As the source explains, the Croatian’s future at the club remains in doubt, as he and the hierarchy could find themselves at odds regarding transfer plans.

For instance, Club President Claudio Lotito and sporting director Angelo Fabiani would like to protect their main investments from last summer, namely Matteo Guendouzi, Gustav Isaksen and Nicolo Rovella. On the other hand, the former Hellas Verona coach doesn’t necessarily hold the trio in high regard.

Moreover, Guendouzi will likely make a transfer request if Tudor remains at the helm, as the two men had an altercation during their time together at Marseille, and their differences resurfaced once more in the Italian capital. The French midfielder’s entourage is reportedly seeking clarity on the situation, giving the club a four or five-day ultimatum.

Hence, the management would like to understand if the coach is willing to work with the players at his disposal and avoid a market revolution. Otherwise, the two parties will decide to split paths,

Nevertheless, the most shocking twist that Pedullà has in store concerns the possible replacements. While departing Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano could be an option if he doesn’t sign for Bologna first, the journalist claims that Sarri’s return could be on the cards. It’s worth mentioning that Pedullà is a good friend of the former Lazio boss.
