Lippi eyes national job

Italy's 2006 World Cup winning boss Marcello Lippi would accept a job with a foreign national side.

The tactician is looking to get back into the game after being out of work since the Azzurri's spectacular collapse at South Africa 2010.

"I hope to be working abroad," Lippi told Radio Toscana. "Up until now I have received many offers, but nothing concrete has evolved.

"I'd like to take charge of a national side rather than a club one, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens."

Cesare Prandelli replaced Lippi at the helm of the Italian side and the Viareggino is impressed by what the former Viola boss has done so far.

"I like the enthusiasm that I have seen in this Nazionale," continued the ex-Juventus tactician.

"It reminds me of the spirit within the camp during my first two-year cycle which ended in winning the World Cup."

Lippi also complimented Milan, who are just one point away from clinching the Scudetto from city rivals Inter.

"There is just a metre to go, actually just a centimetre," continued Lippi. "I think they deserve the title because they really wanted the championship."
