Italian Football Federation president Giancarlo Abete says they do not want to lose coach Cesare Prandelli.
Prandelli is expected to leave the post after the World Cup.
âThere is a belief that our relationship with Prandelli can continue,â Abete told Calciomercato.com.
âOur position is very clear. We believe Prandelli has done a great job looking at results.
âWe finished second in the European Championships and third in the Confederations Cup, all during a difficult period for Italian football.
âHe has also introduced important values to the team.â
