The Italian was sacked as Fiorentina boss in 2012 after Adem Ljajic applauded him sarcastically following a substitution – Rossi’s response was to attack the young Serbian as he went to take his seat on the substitute bench.

During his next job in charge of Sampdoria, Rossi got involved in an on-field spat with AS Roma star Nicolas Burdisso during a game.
