Bielsa abandons Lazio!

In a dramatic turn of events Marcelo Bielsa has reportedly decided to turn down Lazio at the last minute.

The Coach was expected to arrive in Rome to take up the reins of the Biancocelesti, but his landing kept being deferred.

After El Loco's contract was deposited with Lega Serie A, it seemed as though his signing had become official and all the rumours could be laid to rest.

But in a stunning new development, both Sky Sports Italia and SportMediaset are reporting that Bielsa changed his mind and that he will not be coming to Italy.

Lazio will hand over the team to Simone Inzaghi, at least for the moment. Sky Sports also report that the club will take legal action against Bielsa, although all future developments at this stage are pure conjecture.
