His managerial career started in 2006, leading Bari to the 2008–09 Serie B title, and Siena to promotion from the same division two years later.

Lazio fought with me tooth and nail because they also wanted it more than the other teams. 7 points clear at the halfway stage.
I didn't use any tricks, I just allowed my players to do what they knew best which is play in a dynamic system which is built on wonderful team work. Another way you could confirm this is by looking at the amount of players I have who are wanted by other clubs. Clubs come after top performing players.
Rotation was also a vital part of my performances because it means I had no tired players and everybody was fighting for their place. No player was safe, not even Buffon. I also gave the youth a chance: Koman, Morata, Dybala, Zaza, Rugani... all players I used because I believed that youth add passion and drive to a stagnant group.
