Fabio Grosso expresses desire to return to the dugout, seeks a new challenge

In an interview with Sky, Fabio Grosso, the former Lyon manager, has publicly declared his eagerness to return to the coaching scene. “I want to return to coaching as soon as possible. I want a new project as I’m ready to return,” Grosso expressed, showing his desire for a fresh challenge in the world of football management.

Grosso’s brief stint at Lyon between September and November 2023 saw the team struggling to find form, with a record of only one win, two draws, and four losses out of seven matches. His tenure at Lyon was also marked by a stressful episode which saw the team’s bus attacked with stones en route to a match in Marseille, resulting in injuries, including to Grosso himself.

Before his time with Lyon, the Italian had managerial spells with a variety of clubs, including Bari, Verona, Brescia, Sion, and Frosinone. During his playing days, Grosso was a left-back who played a key role in Italy’s 2006 World Cup triumph, writing his name in the annals of Italian football history. Grosso has been without a club since the 30th of November when Lyon decided to fire him after a 0:2 home loss at the hands of Lille.
