Delio Rossi says there's no way back for him at Palermo.
The coach is off contract from the Rosanero after being fired, then re-hired, by president Maurizio Zamparini during the season.
Rossi said: "I left a squad that I knew well and showed me great affection.
"The President knew the moment he recalled me that, whatever happened, I would not be in charge of Palermo next season. It wouldn't have been right to begin again without letting him know my intentions."
