(GSM) – Former Italy manager Marcello Lippi is ready to go back to work – if he is presented with a promising job opportunity.
The World Cup-winning coach resigned from his post as Italy manager after the Azzurri’s disastrous trip to South Africa saw the world champions finish bottom of their group.
After returning from South Africa, Lippi was berated in the media and hence had to take a time out from football management after the World Cup.
“It was right to rest after the World Cup,” Lippi told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
However, Lippi admits he is ready to go back to work provided that an adequate offer comes in.
“If a proposal that I like were to arrive, then I would be ready to get back to work.”
The former Juventus tactician was talking while at a UEFA event where he and Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque were presented with awards for having won both the Champions League and the World Cup.
Lippi has been linked with an unlikely Roma post that may be vacated if current coach Claudio Ranieri’s team continues in its horrific form.
