Ancelotti wants Pirlo in Italy staff

Carlo Ancelotti has asked to both his son and Andrea Pirlo in his staff if he takes over the Italy job, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Coach had a meeting with the FIGC representatives this week in Rome and will give them a firm reply at the end of this month.

The latest reports suggest that Ancelotti laid down some conditions for taking the role and that includes having his son Davide – who already caused some waves at Bayern Munich – and former Italy hero Pirlo in his coaching staff.

Ancelotti would be more expensive than Roberto Mancini of Zenit, but even the former Inter boss still commands over €5m per year wages.
