No Ukraine deal for Lippi

Talks between Marcello Lippi and the Ukrainian Football Federation have stalled, reports are suggesting.

Ukraine have been trying to hire the World Cup winning boss ahead of Euro 2012, a tournament they will co-host with Poland.

However, a Ukrainian TV station has today insisted that negotiations have collapsed over personal terms.

The former Juventus and Inter boss reportedly wanted an 18-month contract worth just over €7m in total.

The Ukrainian FA, on the other hand, are said to have offered him €5m with a series of performance-related bonuses in place.
