Luigi di Biagio named interim Italy coach

Luigi di Biagio has been named interim coach of Italy.

Italy U21 boss Di Biagio should be in place to oversee Italy's next three friendlies against Argentina, England and Saudi Arabia.

“It's gone well so far, we've only talked about programs and priorities," FIGC vice-commissioner and ex-Milan defender Billy Costacurta told Calciomercato.it.

“Malago said I'd have the last word on the CT? I don't think so. Fabbricini will want to have his say…

“Conte said he had 18 months left on his Chelsea contract and would respect it? We'll see, he's still a candidate.

“We heard from Mancini last night, but it was by chance. Now we have some time to think things through.

“I'll call Di Biagio: he'll be the caretaker, although we hope he will. If he wins our next three friendlies 4-0, we should think about him.

“However, for now he must be considered the Coach of our Under 21s and our caretaker."
