Igli Tare spoke exclusively to ViolaNews.com and played down reports linking Gilardino to Lazio.
Asked about the rumours circulating the player's future with Viola and linking him to Lazio, Tare said: "There is not much to say about a possibility of Gilardino moving to Lazio. We are a club that respects its values, and we will not negotiate with the player without discussions with Fiorentina. But I don't want to discuss such items at this stage of the season. Everyday we have 40 names linked to lazio, and as for Gilardino, I don't think he wants to leave Florence."
