Lazio chief Igli Tare admits turning down AC Milan

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare admits turning down a move to AC Milan over the summer.

Tare says he still has much to achieve with Lazio.

“I'm in a hurry to reach the Champions League," he told Corriere dello Sport.

“The group knows that in the last three years, we could've easily qualified.

“Boban was my idol, Maldini was an exemplary player and also is as a director.

“I saw their act of love firsthand, but my decision came from the heart. Leaving would've been wrong. I chose with my heart, not money.

“When I go abroad, I realise Lazio is an important name. Before I leave, I'll take time to think it over. I know I've built something beautiful with the club, technical staff and players."
