Igli Tare: “Astori to Roma is a low blow”

Igli Tare, technical director of Lazio, spoke this evening to lalaziosiamonoi.it after Roma hijacked their rival’s deal for Davide Astori.

“Today, we had an agreement with the player and Cagliari around 12. Then Astori called me saying he was confused because he heard we lost a hold of him. I explained that the deal, with everyone, was done. We have been honest, and haven’t told reporters. It’s not a question of resigning or not. As you say, waiting until the end of the transfer session is the best option. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Astori to Roma is a low blow. They changed the deal at the last minute.”
