Cesare Prandelli has released the hardest hitting shocker of a statement following his decision to resign as manager of Fiorentina on Tuesday, where he said he stepped down because of a "darkness" which has grown inside him.
He was out of the game for almost two years before brief spells at Genoa and Fiorentina, where he has quit after only four months in charge.
"I am aware that this might mean the end of my managerial career, but I have no regrets and I don't wish to have any. It is probable that this world, which I have been a part of all my life, is no longer for me and I don't recognise myself in it anymore. I am sure I have changed and the world moves quicker than I thought. For this reason, I believe the moment has arrived for me to no longer be dragged at this speed and to stop and rediscover who I really am."
