Lazio typo ruined Kostic deal with Eintracht Frankfurt

by | Sep 1, 2021 18:09

There are reports that Lazio could’ve signed Filip Kostic from Eintracht Frankfurt, if not for a typo in the email when sending their offer.

The Serbia international had long been on their radar and seemingly agreed personal terms months ago, but the Biancocelesti were unable to work out a transfer fee with his club.

According to these numerous reports, the move collapsed because Lazio sent an email to the wrong address.

Some had suggested the Bundesliga outfit intentionally gave an incorrect email to scupper the deal, but Eintracht Frankfurt assured and others that it was Lazio who made a typo in the address.

It seems that the Aquile wrote ‘Franfurt’ rather than ‘Frankfurt’ in the email address.

“I don’t want to talk about it, there’s no point now,” Lazio director of sport Igli Tare told

“We wanted to sign Kostic, but that’s in the past now. We wish the best to the player and Eintracht Frankfurt.”

Meanwhile, angry Lazio fans furious over the relative lack of transfer activity this summer sent threatening and insulting messages to Tare’s son, Etienne, who plays for the club’s Primavera youth team.

He complained via Instagram that he had received anything from insults to death threats.

    Why do they have be such scumbags an bring his kid into it? Its little wonder that certain Lazio fans have such a bad name.

    To be fair, it now seems every club has these so called ‘fans’. None of them are fans. They’re all wannabe stalkers going on social media and threatening people. A load of hot air to get attention. We saw that a few days ago with Samu getting abuse online. Complete contrast to fans inside the stadium who cheered his name when he came on. Social media is central to all of this. It is providing the bottle of the barrel of the cesspit with the opportunity to vent their life’s frustrations at people who they’ve never met.

    Yesterday when Milan signed Messias, some guy went and posted ‘messiasout’ on the ac Milan Facebook page. I mean how do you control this? What do you do to somehow stop these idiots?
