Igli Tare told Il Tempo about the new wave of death threats he has received since Roma signed Davide Astori.

"After that night in Auronzo - the altercation with the fans at the hotel, the troubles have started again. Someone else has now found out my mobile number and spread it on the internet. Then the usual threatening messages began to arrive, but not only that."

"I received strange phonecalls, such as one from Alitalia. Someone had booked a flight in my name to Rotterdam. After cancelling I spent two hours trying to work out who did it. They have their fun. Then there were thousands of messages of insults and threats."

The situation worsened after Roma struck a deal to sign reported Lazio target Astori. Tare continued:

"That other night, they even started to call my wife's phone so I started to worry. It's incredible that in a country like Italy, you can't protect your privacy. Over the next few hours I'll be forced to change my mobile again, which will not be easy as it's a fundamental tool of my job. I have had many problems but the one that upsets me most are the insults towards my family."

Tare is expected to fly out to Holland soon for the next stage in negotiations for De Vrij.
