World Cup winning Coach Marcello Lippi has announced he will retire from coaching club sides at the end of the season.
The 65-year-old intends to stand down from his current position at Chinese outfit Guangzhou Evergrande but remains open to the possibility of coaching a national side.
“At the end of the year I will stop coaching club sides,” Lippi told Marca.
“I would like to Coach a national team, maybe even China, but I don’t have the energy anymore to coach every day."
The Italian tactician has enjoyed a glittering career and also spoke about how Real Madrid once approached him for his services.
“Real wanted me but I was at Juventus and I couldn’t think about any other club,” he revealed.
