Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni says he's available for Italy after the World Cup.
The former AC Milan coach has made no secret in his interest for Cesare Prandelli's job.
â€śI read that I am among the candidates for the post-Prandelli era, but I am not putting myself forward as a candidate,â€ť Zaccheroni told Sport Mediaset.
â€śIâ€™ll wait until after the World Cup and then make my decision based on any eventual proposals I receive.
â€śWhat would I say if the call from Italy did come? I donâ€™t even know when this should arrive. Nobody has called me yet, at least not from Italy.
â€śMy intention is to decide in July, but I donâ€™t know if others will wait that long. My experience in Japan has been gratifying. I personally grew as a Coach, having previously only worked at club level.
â€śSome were a little perplexed at how I would do leading a national team, but I won the Asian Cup and achieved World Cup qualification, so the results were there.â€ť
