Ciccio Graziani, one of Italy’s 1982 World Cup winners, claims he would make the Azzurri ‘fly’ if he became CT.
Graziani coached Fiorentina to the UEFA Cup Final in 1990 and Catania to Serie B 15 years ago, while his last job saw him guide non-League Cervia to Serie D in 2005, as part of a reality show.
“We need a Coach that chooses the best players and makes them play together,” the 64-year-old told Tiki Taka.
“I’m 64 years old and I don’t intend to put my name forward, but if [the job] was offered to me, I’d make this national team fly.
“Tavecchio? He didn’t resign. Simply put, when he realised he had no more chips, he made this gesture.
“The rest doesn’t interest us. The only thing that mattered was the World Cup and Italy won’t be there. That’s why we’ll have a horrible summer.”
