It's been a tremendously disappointing season for Fiorentina as they languish near the bottom of the table and during a match between relegation certainty Novara, it got much, much worse. Adem Ljajic was prematurely subbed out of the match two minutes after Novara went up 2-0 at the half-hour mark and as he made his way to the bench, he sarcastically applauded and gave a thumbs up to manager Delio Rossi.

Obviously, this was unacceptable behavior from Rossi, no matter how frustrated and desperate to instill discipline he was. But Ljajic should've known better than to mouth off to him. After all, Rossi has worked for crazypants Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini twice in one season. Clearly he has a taste for carnage.

UPDATE: Fiorentina sacked Rossi after the match, which ended in a 2-2 draw thanks to two goals from Riccardo Montolivo.

Fiorentina have officially fired Delio Rossi after he attacked Adem Ljajic in a dugout brawl (watch video). “Unfortunately we had to take this decision.”

There were astounding scenes in the 2-2 draw with Novara when Ljajic was substituted after 36 minutes and sarcastically applauded the Coach, apparently also hurling insults.

Rossi lost his calm and attacked the teenage player, grabbing him by the neck and raining down a series of blows on his head when falling into the dugout.

“Unfortunately it was a serious incident and it’s all the more amazing considering he is such a calm person, but we had to fire the Coach.

“In recent years this club has done great things with certain values and unfortunately we had to take this decision to sack the tactician. Tomorrow morning we will take more decisions and there will be time to find a replacement.

“It’s the last decision we wanted to take, but we feel it is also for his own good. I hadn’t realised what happened at the time, as I was in the stands and you cannot see it from there.

“We talked and he gave his explanation. He is ready to apologise, as he is such a good man, as proved throughout his career, but I had to make this decision. We are sorry for Rossi, as he does not deserve to be seen all over the world acting this way, but it was a serious incident and we had to fire him.

“There has been so much stress that accumulated over the last few months, although there can be no justification. When he sees the footage too, he will realise exactly what happened.

“There will also be punishment for the player, as he provoked the Coach, even if there should not have been such a reaction.

“Again, tomorrow we will discuss what exactly happened and what Ljajic said. Tomorrow we begin again. It’s sad that we were almost safe and are now in this situation, but we need one more point.”

the coach is not enough to take the control of players

we have players who support the coach like DEL PIERO, BUFFON

we also have players who I don't see them becoming a problem if the coach substitute them like; QUAGLIARELA, MARCHISIO, VIDAL, BONNUCI ect

there is a great harmony going at JUVENTUS and that is really impressive and it effects even other players like ELIAH example who doesn't seem to be a problem but the opposite; motivated and patience
