2006 World Cup winning coach Marcello Lippi spoke to Sky from the Reset Academy, where he is an honorary president of the establishment.

In the brief interview, he praised his fellow Italian colleagues.

“I don’t speak for myself, but for everybody. The Italians have that something extra tactically, they prepare their teams better and as a consequence their players are better prepared. No other country has a Serie B or C like Italy.

“Returning to the bench? Why not. Up until a little while ago, I said no, I didn’t look around, and I made a mistake.

“In China I thought I didn’t have the desire to be involved in football any longer. However it was only a question of being so far away from home. Passing through the winter nothing impressed me, even a little bit. Not in Italy, France or anywhere else.

Closing his interview, Lippi spoke on Juventus.

“They are missing a ‘plaza of serenity’, constantly making changes in abundant. The great misfortune was to change Pirlo and Vidal with sub-par replacements for three months. A player like Pogba has to have different responsibilities.
