Departing Juventus defender Cannavaro keen for Lippi to join Al-Ahli

Departing Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro would love to see Italy coach Marcello Lippi join him at Al-Ahli.

The Azzurri's 2006 World Cup-winning captain would relish the opportunity to be reunited with his former national coach, but insists it was not a factor in his decision to move to Dubai.

"I'd love him to come," Cannavaro, who won 132 caps for Italy, told L'Equipe.

"I do not know if he intends to lead the team the next season.

"I made this choice because I needed a change. But he has not decided yet.

"But in Dubai, it is hot and there is the sea. For him, it could be an advantage."
