Super agent Raiola: Italy lost their identity under Prandelli

Italian super agent Mino Raiola says Italy need to rediscover their identity. The Azzurri were bundled out of the World Cup at the group stage.

Cesare Prandelli resigned straight after the World Cup elimination and there is confusion over who will take over.

"I'd like a Coach who had clear ideas and stuck to them. In the world we became famous for catenaccio, but lost any sense of identity.

"The FIGC needs to change, get rid of those who didn't dare defend Mario or the other players, who were incapable since 2006 of starting a real project.

"They would only need to copy the approach of others, like Spain or Holland, but nothing happens."
