Tudor Steps Down as Lazio Manager After Brief Three-Month Tenure

Igor Tudor has stepped down as the head coach of Lazio, concluding his stint after the 2023-24 Serie A season.

The appointment came in the wake of Maurizio Sarri’s resignation from the Stadio Olimpico in March, placing Tudor at the helm with an 18-month deal.

Despite steering the squad to a respectable seventh-place finish and securing a spot in the Europa League, Lazio has officially announced his exit.

“S.S. Lazio has accepted Igor Tudor’s resignation from his role as first team manager,” the club’s statement declared.

“We extend our gratitude to the coach for his tenure and wish him success in his future endeavors,” the club added.

The 46-year-old embarked on his managerial journey at Hajduk Split, the club where he spent significant time as a player.

Following roles in Greece and Turkey, Tudor ventured into Italy’s Serie A, initially with Udinese in 2018, where he managed two stints within a year.

Tudor’s career also includes managing Hellas Verona and Marseille—where he led the French outfit to third in Ligue 1, clinching a Champions League berth—prior to his brief encounter with Lazio.
