Departing FIGC chief Carlo Tavecchio admits “it’s difficult for the new Italy CT to be appointed before June.”
Italy have been without a CT since Giampiero Ventura was sacked for failing to guide the country to the 2018 World Cup, but Tavecchio – who will stay in charge of the FIGC until his own heir is elected at the end of January – accepts “the best Coaches are under contract” at the moment.
“Since the day after Sweden, I haven’t said a word,” he told reporters.
“When the time comes, I’ll say what I have to say. The race for the new FIGC President is calm, and the best candidate will win.
“I’m in charge until January 29, but I won’t be the one that chooses the new CT. I can also tell you that the best Coaches are under contract until June.
“It’s difficult for the new CT to be appointed before then.”
