Rossi explains rejecting chance for Palermo return

Delio Rossi has explained rejecting an offer to return to Palermo.

Rossi was approach by the Rosanero after the dismissal of Stefano Pioli in preseason.

He was fired and re-hired during last season before his contract expired, but when replacement Pioli was sacked, President Maurizio Zamparini looked for a reunion.

"Zamparini called me and I was pleased to hear from him," confessed Rossi on Radio Deejay.

"He wanted to bring me back to Palermo, but now there simply aren't the conditions to make that happen, because I'd left so recently.

"Looking at the transfer campaign that was in opposition to the approach we had taken before, I would've represented the past. I would not have been in the right place."
