Ilicic thanks former Coach Rossi

Josip Ilicic has praised ex-Coach Delio Rossi, believing it is because of the ex-Palermo boss he had a successful debut season in Serie A.
Following a brief spell at Maribor, the Slovenia international was on his way to Sicily after a Europa League tie between the two clubs. Under the guidance of Rossi, Ilicic shone, linking up with Fabrizio Miccoli and the now departed Javier Pastore.
Ahead of Rossi’s return to the Stadio Renzo Barbera as Coach of Fiorentina this weekend, Ilicic was full of admiration for his influence on his career.
“On Sunday Delio Rossi comes here – he is the coach who launched my career to a greater level,” Ilicic told
“I will show my gratitude. I owe him everything. I would not have had a season like I did last year if not for him.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
