Marcelo Bielsa Has Left Lazio After Just Two Days In Charge
After he agreed to join Lazio earlier in the week, Marcelo Bielsa has shocked Italian football by backing out of the deal in a dramatic u-turn.
Bielsa, who's last managerial post was with French side Marseille, has incredibly left the club after he was due to begin work on July 9th in Rome.
His actions have been been deemed a clear violation of the contract signed and as a result of his actions, Lazio are planning to sue the 60-year-old.
