Agent cannot understand Italy snub for Napoli defender Cannavaro

The agent of Napoli skipper Paolo Cannavaro cannot understand why he continues to be ignored for Italy.

Cannavaro, younger brother of 2006 World Cup winner Fabio, continues to be ignored by Azzurri boss Cesare Prandelli despite his status at Napoli.

"Cannavaro is having a stupendous campaign and his non call-up is absurd," agent Gaetano Fedele told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"He's having an excellent season and Italy should select the players who are best performing in the championship. Evidently that is not the case."

One aspect going against the inclusion of Cannavaro is that Napoli play with a back-three, while Prandelli employs a back-four.

"That excuse doesn't stand up," added Fedele. "Fabio Cannavaro played in a three-man defence while at Parma and he always played in a four for his country.

"Cesare Prandelli needs to clear this matter up."
