Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has admitted that he is flattered by reported interest from AC Milan.

The Rossoneri are looking to replace Leonardo who left his position last week, with Paolo Maldini apparently keen on idea of hiring Tare to help launch a new era at the club.

While the Lazio chief admitted to being flattered by interest,

“Milan’s interest is positive in a certain sense,” he told Puno ne top Channel.

“You also need to know how to handle it well but, above all, I’m at a big club and in a very familiar environment.

“As for tomorrow, I can’t predict it. Lazio are a very big club, but as professionals anything can happen in our world.

“It’s part of our profession, we must maintain a balance. What’s important for me is that I’m at a big club and in a very familiar environment, which is important for getting results.

“I can’t predict the future. What’s important is the present, being happy, feeling good, being successful for my club, having the right enthusiasm and being surrounded by positivity.

“They’re some of the main things that create success. As for tomorrow, I can’t predict it because Lazio are a very big club. But since I’m a professional, anything can happen in our world.”

Simone Inzaghi extended his contract as Lazio boss until 2021 on Thursday, stating he has ‘unfinished business’.

“It’s not an issue of convincing him or not. It’s an issue of relationship, the prospects we can offer him,” Tare explained.

“Inzaghi is one of the people who have written Lazio’s history. He has a 20-year history with this club.

“On the one hand it’s easy to convince him, but on the other he must be convinced of the project.

“After a period of reflection lasting almost two weeks, we were able to make the contract renewal happn for the next two seasons.

“I believe he has unfinished business here.”
