Lazio 'respect the rules' after their Torino match canceled- says Tare

Tue 02 March 2021 | 18:12

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare will not offer Torino a bit of leeway on today's game and demands they are simply adhering to the principles by viably accepting a 3-0 victory.

The game was intended to commence at 17.30 GMT, yet


had to stay put under quarantine until at any rate 12 PM this evening, as requested by the ASL (local health authority). 

"I could say many things, but I am keeping them to myself," Tare told Sky Sport Italia.

"We respected the rules, we came to the stadium, we'll stay for 45 minutes and then leave it all to the authorities.

"It might've been convenient for us too not to play, but the league has to be respected, the situation was decided a long time before this and as far as we are concerned, we're just following the rules.

"We mustn't get into the dynamics of what happens afterwards. We just do what we are told by the Lega."

Does the 47-year-old director, in any event, comprehend why it's totally not possible for Torino to travel and play this

Serie A

game on time? 

"I don't need to understand anything. There might be many points of view, but it's the authorities that have the power to make those evaluations and decisions.

"I don't want to create any controversy. We know how things are going and what is being said. The only thing that matters is that we are here. As for the rest, those who will decide can decide."

Were Lazio approached to play the game tomorrow, because the isolation terminates at midnight? 

"No," was the response.

"Up until last night, we received no information other than we'd be playing the game. We prepared to play the match. We respected the protocol, now we leave it to the authorities and they will make the decisions."

This isn't equivalent to


's neglected outing to the


Stadium in October, because here the whole crew has been isolated for a week, and it was anything but a very late choice, nor was there any disarray over the thing the ASL was requesting.
