FIGC refusing to comment on Prandelli future
With speculation that AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri and Japan’s Alberto Zaccheroni could succeed Italy coach Cesare Prandelli, the chief of the Italian Football Federation Giancarlo Abete refused to be drawn on the issue.
Instead the 63-year-old preferred to focus on the upcoming qualifying matches against Bulgaria and the Czech Republic stating that Italians should concentrate less on the future and more on the present.
“In Italy, we are master of thinking about tomorrow without thinking about today,” Abete told Sky Sports Italia.
“Right now, we have two qualifiers against Bulgaria in Palermo tonight and then the Czech Republic in Turin on Tuesday.
“We must be focused on just these matches right now. There will be time in the future to expand on other things.”
