Lippi fancies Premiership move

World Cup winning coach Marcelo Lippi has revealed his desire to come and coach in England as well as his plans to learn the English language.

The former Juventus coach has been linked with a number of jobs in England in the past including The Three Lions job, the Ireland job and a few others in and around the Premier League.

Lippi is one of the most successful coaches in world football and he has won major honours at both club and international level.

He has now expressed his intentions to turn his hand to the English game.

"Speaking English is one of my biggest desires," Lippi told Goal.it

"I want to learn how to speak English and therefore this could push me towards accepting a job on the continent.

"I always tell my friend Sir Alex Ferguson that he is lucky that the whole world understands him when he talks.

"Capello at England, Trapattoni at Ireland, they are flying the flag for our reputation and I must admit I am interested as well."
