Igli Tare (born 25 July 1973 in Vlorë) is an Albanian former football striker. He is now the technical area coordinator of Lazio.[1]

Early life[edit]

Igli Tare studied at the Qemal Stafa High School, in Tirana, Albania.[2]

Career[edit]

Tare began his professional career in 1996 with Karlsruhe in Germany where he remained until 1997 before moving to Fortuna Düsseldorf in the 2. Bundesliga.

In 1999, Tare moved to Kaiserslautern, where he played for a season before being signed by veteran Italian manager Carlo Mazzone. For five seasons, Tare played with Mazzone's Brescia, before again transferring, this time to Bologna where he was reunited with Mazzone.

At Bologna, Tare was popular amongst the fans and scored an important goal in the relegation play-off against fierce rivals Parma, however Tare's goal was not enough and they lost the return leg at home, being relegated to Serie B.

Following Bologna's relegation, Tare was loaned out to capital club Lazio scoring just three goals in his first season. Following this loan period, Tare joined the club on a permanent basis.

Tare was not a regular starter under Delio Rossi, but was able to play and score vital goals when others were out with injuries. In late 2007 away to Palermo, Tare scored off a Lorenzo De Silvestri cross, ending a scoring drought which stretched back for almost two years. He backed this goal up with another vital goal in the Coppa Italia against Napoli, which proved to be the winner.

International career[edit]

Tare has been capped over 68 times by the Albania national football team and scored 10 goals.[3] As one of the most experienced members of the side, Tare was long time captain of the national team.

Tare's most impressive play was during the match against Russia in the UEFA Euro 2004 Qualifications when Albania won 3–1 and Tare scored the third goal.

Post-playing career[edit]

In 2007, Tare's international career was effectively ended, after being dropped by manager Otto Barić.

Tare's Lazio contract expired at the end of the 2007–08 season. He then accepted a non-playing role at Lazio, becoming the club's team manager.[4] On April 2009 he completed a course in order to obtain abilitation as sporting director, which is his resign from Lazio
