Tare: 'Know Milinkovic's replacement'

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare reveals he has ‘a player in mind’ to replace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but ‘I’d rather kill myself’ than say his name.

Tare has been Lazio’s sporting director since 2008, and the former Albania striker explained to Sky Sport Italia the secrets behind the club’s recent rise to the top of Serie A.

“I think, and experience has taught me, that time and patience is needed to implement a strong technical project,” he told the broadcaster.

“History has shown us over the years that some players arrived to some scepticism and then became important.

Paris Saint-Germain continue to be linked with Milinkovic-Savic’s signature, so do the Aquile have a successor lined up?

“I have a player in mind, but I’ll never say his name. I’d rather kill myself.”
