Former Inter coach Marcello Lippi is one manager being linked with the Italian national team job if Roberto Mancini is sacked, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport today, Roberto Mancini will decide on his future after the match against Turkey on Tuesday which has no importance.
Despite winning Euro 2020 with Italy last summer, the former Inter coach has now presided over Italy’s second successive failed attempt to qualify for the World Cup.
If he is to leave or be sacked by the FIGC, three names have been lined up as possible replacements. One of those is Marcello Lippi who coached Inter in the 1999-2000 season.
Another is Carlo Ancelotti if he can be prized away from his job at Real Madrid in which he looks set to deliver the title.
The final option is former Napoli defender Fabio Cannavaro who could share the role with Marcello Lippi and learn from him.
