Lippi keen on Chelsea job

Former Italy World Cup winning Coach Marcello Lippi has thrown his hat into the ring for a possible move to Chelsea in the Summer.

Lippi has been out of work since leaving the Azzurri after the disastrous 2010 European Championship campaign where Italy finished bottom of their group, however he has now suggested he is ready to get back into management, with Chelsea top of his wish-list.

Talking to Radio Mana Mana, Lippi said: “I would love to coach in the Premier League, English football fascinates me. I miss coaching, this is normal. My years have been intense and rewarding.

“There were also disappointments, but this is absolutely normal, you can’t always win. I can only be satisfied, but the desire to do my job is still there.

“Me to Chelsea? It would be beautiful. But also to coach a national team would not be bad.”

Many press reports suggest that current Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is to be axed in the Summer after failing to deliver the Champions League trophy, with Roma a possible destination, leaving The Blues hotseat open.

Lippi has won five Italian Scudetti, and one Champions League, both with Juventus, as well as the 2006 World Cup.
