Sacked Fiorentina coach Delio Rossi is eyeing the Italy job.

Rossi says he thinks he has the qualities and skills to take charge of a national side.

"I believe that I have the experience necessary to think about a future with a nation," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"Could I succeed Cesare Prandelli with Italy? Never say never, but I want to make it clear that I haven't put myself forward for that."
