Cesare Prandelli has developed a reputation as one of the best Italian coaches in the world right now. He will be an in demand when he eventually leaves his role as the Italian national team manager. He is widely expected to step down from his role after the end of the 2014 World Cup. He has been linked with several clubs in Italy with Juventus very keen in him over the last few months.

Juventus are regarded as one of the top clubs in Italy, while they have won the league in the last two seasons in succession. Their manager Antonio Conte is regarded as one of the best young and upcoming managers.


Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli has said that he is expecting more from the national team in the future, but he is confident that they can become a truly great team. Italy were often criticised in recent years for having several older players in the team.

Immediately after taking over, Prandelli has been working towards reducing the age of the national squad. Through the introduction of players like Mario Balotelli and Stephan El Shaarawy, Italy now boasts of a lot of young talent. As a result, there have been inconsistencies in their game in recent months.


The Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli has said that he does not rule out the possibility of the Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano representing the national team once again.

The striker has not been part of the Italian team since the Euro 2012, which have led to rumours suggesting that his international career is all but over. The manager, though, has said that his exclusion from the team is not permanent and he will be back in his plans in the near future. He has said that it is right that Italy chose a number of different players in order to determine the strength of the squad before the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.


Cesare Prandelli, the Italy National Football Team coach has come out in public support of Antonio Cassano, stating that he is one of those players that he is sure to take to the European Championships of 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

Cassano, who is currently playing for Italian champions AC Milan has not had much game time this season and was criticized from various media about his credibility to play in the European Championships.

The 28 year old striker, who began his career at AS Roma before heading to Spain and play for the Spanish giants Real Madrid before heading home for the lack of playing time with Sampdoria, joined AC Milan in January 2011 but his time on the pitch with them has been very limited.
