A day after failure with FCSB (0-2), Gabi Tamaș he called the president of Petrol and told him that he really wanted to terminate his contract. Costel Lazarus says he doesn’t know what the veteran’s motives are and has summoned him before the Steering Committee on Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. to clear things up.
Costel Lazăr: “Gabi Tamaș asked me to resign without fail!”
“It is his request. I invited him to the meeting of the Board of Directors to know the position and what are the reasons. The request was made by phone, yesterday evening (no – Monday), to me and the head coach. We did not establish the reasons, that’s why I called him tomorrow, to know the reasons. Maybe it’s personal issues, maybe we can help him or not. It’s the second such request, which worries us all.
I don’t care about the reactions of the fans. I am interested in clarifying the problem with the player. Furthermore, what he conveyed to the fans or those fans who only read a paragraph of an invitation is beyond me. I’m interested in the opinion of real fans who love Petrol, not those who speculate or criticize me. I don’t have Facebook, but if those fans don’t know how to read that I invited him to discuss the terms, if he really wants the termination or can’t anymore… I don’t know what’s going on! I really don’t have more data. Called me. He asked me to terminate necessarily. I said: ‘Gabi, you don’t have to ask me, I don’t decide on my own. It’s a Board of Directors, it’s an AGM, not a single person'”said Costel Lazăr, for Sport.ro.
A reason circulated by some Petrol fans for Gabi Tamaș’s desire to leave the team would be a possible conflict with coach Nae Constantin, but the president does not believe in this option: “I am not informed of any conflict with the coach, it is really hard for me to believe that there would have been a conflict with Nae Constantin”.
Costel Lazăr: “Love with sila is called rape. I want to listen to him and tell us the reasons”
Costel Lazăr points out that, unlike Gabi Tamaș’s first termination request, made on August 31, the players are up to date, so financial problems should be excluded from the calculation this time.
“I’m not trying to convince him of anything because forced love is called rape. I want us all to listen to him and tell us what the reasons are. If there are good reasons and he can’t continue, stop. We’ll see which it’s the solution.
What to do? We can’t forcefully keep a man at the club if he can’t anymore. But I want to emphasize that Mr. Tamaș is up to date with money, so from a financial point of view there should be no reasons”Lazar also said.
