Tare: "In Football, The Concept Of Miracles Is Overused. To Me, A Miracle Is Winning A Single Match, Not Consistently Maintaining A Top-Four Position Throughout The Season."

February 26, 2024

Former sporting director Igli Tare has returned to discuss matters concerning Lazio. While awaiting new opportunities in management, Tare reflects on his time with the Biancoceleste and offers insights on the team's performance under Maurizio Sarri's leadership. Speaking on Radio Deejay, Tare reflects on his tenure at the club and evaluates Lazio's recent acquisitions, particularly focusing on the contrast between Matteo Guendouzi and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

"In my time at Lazio, I aimed to be true to myself and give my best effort. Representing a club like Lazio was a significant and demanding responsibility. It was a unique experience that will always shape my future endeavors. Thanks to this experience, I feel equipped to take on any new challenges."

"Many have spoken of miracles, a term that I find discomforting. I firmly believe that Lazio possesses a strong squad this year capable of contending for a top-four finish. To me, a miracle is winning a single match, not consistently maintaining a top-four position throughout the season. When you appoint a coach of Sarri's caliber and have a team that reached the Champions League round of 16 the previous year, it signifies that you are part of a progressive development process. In football, the concept of miracles is overused. Take, for example, Bologna this season or Atalanta in previous years; their success was earned through hard work and dedication."

"As for Guendouzi, he is undoubtedly a talented player, known for his strong personality on the field. However, he differs greatly from Milinkovic-Savic, who possessed the ability to single-handedly influence matches as an attacking midfielder. Guendouzi's strengths lie more in his role as a defensive or central midfielder, but it would be unfair to expect him to replicate Milinkovic-Savic's impact."
