Hellas Verona throws a huge chill on the Darko Lazovic case

What’s next after this ad

The first steps in friendly matches are a bit complicated for Igor Tudor. The new OM coach also suffers from a staff that is not yet complete since recruits are still expected. We think in particular of Darko Lazovic, left piston. The 31-year-old Serbian is the priority for Tudor, who knew him well at Hellas Verona last season. An agreement is still awaited, however, while the first figures on this transfer have already come out. However, this file is relatively complex.

The Marseille management wants to send Kevin Strootman to do the opposite. Problem, the Dutch midfielder has not found common ground with the Italian club and remains for the moment in Marseille, where he no longer has a future. It’s been a week that the negotiations have not advanced and we can start to worry about the future, especially after the words of the new sporting director of Hellas for the local daily The Arena. According to Francesco Marrocco, there was never any question of a sale of Lazovic.

‘Hellas never put Lazovic on the market’

“Lazovic still remains untransferable. I would like to hear the other side’s version, because the fans fall in love with the players and that’s normal, I’m the sporting director who arrived later and who has to build his credibility. It’s easier to think that Lazovic didn’t want to leave and that Marrocco wanted to sell him. But it’s a rewritten story because Marrocu never put Lazovic on the transfer window or got him off the plane since he never organized it.he explains, speaking of himself in the third person.

Bluff, piece of truth or real position of the sporting director, these words cause confusion. “We would have to understand who organized it and with whom he agreed. The truth, in my culture as in history, is always one and cannot be told in any other way. Hellas never put Lazovic on the market. If the operation took off, it was someone who gave their approval upstream. Maybe one day Darko will tell the truth.” If we are to believe Marrocco, Lazovic, under contract until 2024, will not join OM…
