Prandelli named Lippi's successor

A WEEK into their training camp and two from their opening match at the World Cup in South Africa, Italy are certain that coach Marcello Lippi, pictured, won't be coaching them again in 2014.

After weeks of dithering, the Italian football federation on Sunday chose Cesare Prandelli as Lippi's successor, creating disappointment only among Fiorentina fans, who will miss him after five good Serie A seasons in Florence.

The 52-year-old former Juventus midfielder was offered a four-year contract and invited back to Rome for his official presentation after the World Cup ends on July 11.

"The federation has found the right person," said Lippi, who dispelled the doubts about his future, admitting that he had always planned to quit in July.

Former Italy coach Arrigo Sacchi praised Prandelli for "showing several times, first with Parma, then with Fiorentina, (that he is) a great coach". - Sapa-AFP
