The Italian FA officially announced their decision to appoint Luigi Di Biagio as the temporary head coach.
While things at the FIGC are still gridlocked, the organization did manage to appoint a caretaker manager for the two upcoming friendlies at the end of March.
Commissioner Roberto Fabbricini and his vice-director Alessandro Costacurta agreed to entrust Luigi Di Biagio for the matches against Argentina in Manchester and against England in London. The two luxury friendlies will be the first games Italy will play since the nightmare in Milan last November.
On 4 March, Costacurta was interviewed and stated if Di Biagio performs well and presents clear ideas on going forward, he may be appointed the permanent head coach “like England has done with Southgate.”
The 46-year-old Roman has been in charge of the Italy Under-21 side since 2013.
