(GSM) – Marcello Lippi won’t return to Juventus after the World Cup in South Africa. The Italy coach has been linked with a return to his former club next season, but now he has ended speculations.

Italian media reported that Lippi would return to Juve after the World Cup, on the bench or on the board of directors. Now, the 61-year-old tactician has stated that he will not be involved with the Bianconeri in any shape or form. He also backed his former pupil and current Juve coach Ciro Ferrara, who is under fire following a run of three successive defeats.

“After the World Cup, I will not return to Juventus,” Lippi stated to Sky Sports 24. “I am not a puppet of the team.

“I have simply given some tips to the directors, saying that Ferrara is an excellent coach, and endorsing Fabio Cannavaro and Fabio Grosso as good acquisitions.

“Ciro has made some errors, but that is because of his age, but he has the right personality and charisma to do really well.

“He also has some clear ideas,” Lippi added.
