David Silva made a shock move to Sociedad on Monday evening

There was always going to be some serious fallout when it emerged that David Silva had back out of what many believed to be an agreed upon move to Lazio in favour of a return to LaLiga.

Silva left Manchester City officially over the weekend, and was widely expected to join Serie A giants Lazio on a three-year contract. However, on Monday evening, Real Sociedad announced out of absolutely nowhere that he had in fact signed for them after secret talks.

Less than 24 hours later, Lazio's sporting director Igli Tare has reacted to the news publicly for the first time, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

""I respect David Silva as a player, but NOT as a man," Tare is quoted as saying.
