Igli Tare (born July 25, 1973 in Vlorë ) is a former Albanian football player . He is the sports director of Lazio .


Born in Albania, Tare came to Germany alone when he was 18. Walter Pradt , an employee of the Ludwigshafen social welfare office and coach of the Oberligisten Südwest Ludwigshafen , took on Tares, got him a place to sleep and eat and took him on to his team. However, since he was not happy there and did not feel accepted, he moved to the other bank of the Rhine to VfR Mannheim . A year later he returned to Ludwigshafen. From there he went to the then Bundesliga club Karlsruher SC in 1995 .

In Karlsruhe, however, he was mainly used in the second team and thus continued to play the Oberliga and 1996/97 Regional League. Surprisingly, however, he was appointed to the Albanian national team at the beginning of 1997 and was in the starting eleven at the home game against Germany on April 2, 1997. Tare was in the limelight for the first time, whereupon his then coach at Karlsruhe SC Winfried Schäfer now regularly plays him Bundesliga started, even if they were substitutions. However, he didn't really have a chance to assert himself and switched to Fortuna Düsseldorf in the 2nd Bundesliga during the summer break in 1997 . He made his breakthrough in Düsseldorf, scoring 13 goals in the first and 11 goals in the second year. Tare attributes this to the fact that he finally had confidence. In the second leg of the World Cup qualification in Germany, he had previously duped his opponent Jürgen Kohler and scored a goal. The game on October 11, 1997 in Hanover Albania lost just 4: 3. Tares goal was the 2-2 in the 80th minute.

After Düsseldorf was relegated to the regional league in 1999, Tare moved to 1. FC Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga. At 1. FCK he came to 26 missions in the following year and a half. The time in Kaiserslautern, however, cannot be described as particularly successful. Tare scored only four goals for the club, of which he scored three in the game against SSV Ulm 1846 on the 33rd match day of the 1999/2000 season. The kicker named him man of the day. At the beginning of 2001 he moved to the Italian Serie A for Brescia Calcio .

His path continued to lead to FC Bologna in 2003 and to Italian top club Lazio Rome in 2005 . Tare played there until 2008 before ending his career. His favorite number was number 17, which he wore at Lazio among others.

Tare has been Sports Director of Lazio since 2009 .
