During an investigative programme, agent Vincenzo Morabito mocked Lazio for paying €18m for ‘absolute donkey’ Vedat Muriqi.
Report aired on RAI 3 this evening and was focused on the world of agents and commissions.
It included an interview with agent Morabito, but one of the clips was from when the camera was meant to be off.
He referred to Lazio director Igli Tare, whose brother is the Albanian Consul of Istanbul.
“He has this brother who is the Albanian Consul in Istanbul and suddenly he pays €18m for a player who is an absolute donkey,” said Morabito.
“Simone (Inzaghi) told me: I’m pulling my hair out, here. Stefan Radu tells me he can mark Muriqi with slippers on in training because he’s so bad.
“Muriqi… €18m for Muriqi, and then there are five agents involved with all the commissions. I mean, €18m is a lot of money for Lazio and they get this horrible flop.”
Muriqi is a Kosovo international who Lazio signed from Fenerbahce in September 2020 for €18.5m plus bonuses, and five per cent of his future sale.
He has been a huge disappointment this season, contributing just two goals and one assist in 34 competitive games.
