Igli Tare has been quick to condemn the actions of ex-Lazio player and coach Roberto Mancini after Lazio's 17 year-old winger, Vlad Marin signed for Manchester City.

The player had been absent from training for two days and could not be contacted by the club. Gazzetta dello Sport reported yesterday that he had signed for Manchester City and the player confirmed the news on Twitter, thanking the public for their support and stating his happiness to be on the books of the Premier League champions.
