Eugenio Corini has resigned as Chievo Verona coach.
Corini led Chievo to a respectable mid-table finish last season.
"Nothing in particular happened," he told calcionews24. "We are talking about sensations here. We looked each other in the eyes and realised there weren't the conditions to continue.
"Our history together didn't deserve a disagreement, so we accepted it was best if we went our separate ways, maintaining mutual respect.
"We achieved something extraordinary together considering we started out with a large handicap, the January transfer window didn't provide us with what we were expecting and we had to change the goalkeeper.
"Perhaps what we achieved will only truly be appreciated in the future. I am certainly happy to have had a season in Serie A, repaying the club for the faith it had in me at this level.
"Of course there were difficulties, as is normal, but the important thing is to overcome them with head held high."
