The search for the next Italy coach narrows

Prev1 of 7Next

With the appointment of Luigi Di Biagio ad interim, the question remains who will be the next full-time Azzurri coach.

While the FIGC commissioned for the next six months, some major decisions will have to be made. Commissioner Roberto Fabbricini is tasked with naming the next full head coach of Italy and his vices, Alessandro Costacurta and Michele Uva are already out scouting the field.

First and most pressing are the two friendlies in March. Di Biagio was officially named the coach for those two matches but it remains unlikely he will be the man to commandeer Italy going forward after that. The friendlies in May and June will likely be the beginning of a new chapter in Italian football.

There are a lot of different factions involved at the moment and it is important to keep in mind that the FIGC is still in a state of full turmoil. Also, once Giovanni Malago’ returns from the Olympics at the end of the month, things may change all together.
