Papadopulo walks out on Lecce

Giuseppe Papadopulo has walked out of newly-promoted Lecce after a contract row.

"I can confirm that I won't be leading Lecce in Serie A next season," Papadopulo told Tuttomercatoweb. "It's not a sacking. My contract was going to expire and we didn't find an agreement for a renewal.

"The main reason for the split is a difference in strategies, more than financial disagreements.

"I hoped that I would find common ground with the directors, but that didn't happen. I have always achieved important results and maybe that made me a little presumptuous.

"Are there regrets? At the moment I don't know how to explain my state of mind."
