Rossi: I'm leaving Lazio
Delio Rossi has announced he is quitting as Lazio coach.
The 48-year-old led the Biancocelesti to their first trophy in five years this season, beating Sampdoria on penalties in the Coppa Italia final.
However, he confirmed this afternoon that he is leaving the capital club after four seasons in charge.
"Next year I will not be Lazio coach any more," Rossi told stadionews.it. "Tonight I will meet with president [Claudio] Lotito and tell him my decision.
"Tomorrow, most probably, I will call a press conference to announce my decision to the media."
Speculation has been rife that Rossi will switch jobs with Davide Ballardini, who revealed he wants to leave Palermo at the weekend.
However, the former Lecce and Atalanta coach insists he has no destination in mind.
"Before looking for any other club I want to sort out the situation with Lazio," Rossi added. "I am pleased with [Palermo president Maurizio] Zamparini's appreciation but it is still too early to talk about a future destination."
