Di Canio rejects idea of Lazio return

Paolo Di Canio would not consider succeeding Vladimir Petkovic as Lazio coach due to his fractious relationship with chairman Claudio Lotito.

Me, coaching Lazio? With Lotito there, never in my life. I don't like him but that's no secret.

It's a delicate time and there are lots of different elements that haven't been managed properly.

It's clear that the coach no longer has the power so maybe it's right to make a change. It's not Petkovic's fault but as a coach it's difficult to move a project forward when you know it's already over.
