Abete says Italy want to keep hold of Prandelli

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.

"There is a belief that our relationship with Prandelli can continue," Abete told Calciomercato.com.

"Our position is very clear. We believe Prandelli has done a great job looking at results.

"We finished second in the European Championships and third in the Confederations Cup, all during a difficult period for Italian football.

"He has also introduced important values to the team."
