Lazio sporting director Igli Tare slams former Manchester City star David Silva for joining Real Sociedad

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has launched an astonishing attack on David Silva, insisting he has no respect for the former Manchester City star ‘as a man’ for snubbing his side in favour of Real Sociedad.

Silva left City at the end of his contract this month and received several offers from across Europe.

He was thought to be on the verge of joining Lazio on a free transfer only for Real Sociedad to confirm his shock arrival at the club on Monday night.

Fernando Silva, David Silva’s father told El Transistor of his son’s desire to undertake a new challenge in Serie A: “I can confirm that he loves Serie A and would really enjoy playing in Italy. He told me he could play there until he’s 40.”

However, Lazio issued a curt 21-word statement on their club website on Tuesday in which Tare did not hold back in his criticism of the former City playmaker.

“I learn about David Silva’s transfer to Real Sociedad. I have great respect for the player, but not for the man,” said Tare.

Sociedad handed Silva the No.21 shirt upon his arrival in San Sebastian, which was vacated when Real Madrid winger Martin Odegaard returned to Santiago Bernabeu following a season-long loan.
