As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 51-year-old Italian went to Formello on Tuesday of this week to start the paperwork to terminate his contract with the Roman club, which is due to expire in 2023, but nothing has been handed in yet.
The chances of the two parties resolving the issues are now zero, with each side feeling a sense of disappointment. Peruzzi wanted to have more autonomy in the team manager role but the Biancocelesti failed to offer that.
Peruzzi’s departure from Lazio now seems inevitable, a shame for the squad, who are big fans of the 51-year-old Italian.
Peruzzi has been Lazio’s team manager since the summer of 2016 and will leave the role after five years.
