In Italy, there are many prestigious coaches, but I want to focus on new coaches who deserve a chance, players who are improving and directors who must develop,

" he said.

"It's not enough to have a past as a footballer. One must have different competencies, marketing, communication, image.

"Italian football must be open to innovation. It's happening, but they are behind and that's because of the 2006 World Cup.

"It would be great to win the World Cup every four years, but that time something different happened.
