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