Lazio have appointed Coach Vladimir Petkovic , but assistant Arno Rossini has confirmed he won’t be part of his staff.
“I cannot say much, but for various reasons we were unable to agree a deal,” he told the Corriere dello Sport.
“I’m disappointed, as it would’ve been an exceptional experience.”
Rossini is a former Bellinzona player, Lucerne manager and Petkovic’s right hand man, who worked as his talent scout at club Young Boys.
Strangely, Rossini has also worked at a local Bellinzona school for the past 30 years and was expected to make the leap to Lazio as assistant manager.
